These are the music artists that make me chill when I feel like destroying the world.
Every single person that walks the earth has this terrible day where literally nothing seems to make us feel better about the shitty lives we have been living. Not that I’m having this kind of day right now (otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this article but drinking some chamomile tea and crying in the corner), but the past week I was right there friends.
And as a normal sane person, I just sit on my bed and start listening to music until the sadness and madness finally move out of my brain. Of course, it could be any type of music but that doesn’t quite work for me, it needs to be these music artists aka my babies, specifically.
If you’re in need for some new songs or just need to chill a little bit, I definitely recommend you to keep on reading.
Toro y moi
In my opinion Toro y Moi‘s members are just pure geniuses especially you Chaz. This band manages to pull off any music style pretty well, and that’s what I particularly love about them. Toro y Moi has this Indie Pop, electronic and chill-wave vibe that varies from album to album. My ultimate favorite tracks to listen to are Grown Up Calls, So Many Details and High Living. Seriously, there’s no way you can be upset while listening to these guys. If you have the time, please check out their videos as well.
Miso is an underground Korean producer and singer that creates refreshing R&B soundtracks. Her voice literally seems to come from the heavens and the mighty gods (and i’m an atheist guys). If you’re a fan of chilled R&B with dope beats, you might want to give it a try. My favorite tracks are Castles, Take Me and Higher.
We all know that there’s nothing more relaxing than instrumental music (if it’s used in yoga and mediation it has to mean something right). BadBadNotGood is probably the most talented band right now, they master improvisation and combine jazz and electronic into awesome pieces of art. The ones that I love most are: And that too, Speaking Gently and Chompy’s Paradise from their IV album.
Jamie XX as the name indicates, is a member from The XX band, yet he has been doing some individual tracks that gather indie pop, electronic and dubstep all in once. The dubstep part might seem scary right now but it has nothing to do what you’re probably thinking. Jamie XX’s dubstep is a pretty soft one that triggers good vibes in the brain. It is combined with different styles creating a relaxing sound. I advise you to listen to Girl, Sleep Sound and Loud Places.
This guy, omg. Kaytranada has an incredible ability as a DJ. His style is more towards electronic, hip hop and R&B yet nothing too heavy. His instrumental is pretty sick and the invited artists are often pretty unique on their own (talking about Anderson Paak here). I love the fact that the music he creates has this summer vibe that makes me wanna dance. I not only recommend to listen to his Forever Lasting Night, You’re the One and Glowed Up, but also the full “Whatever” Album. You will forget your problems right away.
Hope you have the chance to explore these music artists and admire their great talent. Let me know what you think of this list and if you have any other suggestions let me down below.
