My all time favorite genre of music is alternative. Whether it is grunge or indie pop or anything in between, it's basically all I listen to. So, when I find new bands or artists that I love, it's so exciting to me. Because alternative is such a diverse genre, I'm always finding new music that I love. If you are like me in this way, here are 7 of my favorite alternative bands and artists I am listening to right now.
1. Billie Eilish
My favorite song: idontwannabeyouanymore
If teardrops could be bottled
There'd be swimming pools filled by models
Told a tight dress is what makes you a whore
Billie Eilish is an alternative singer from Los Angeles, California who has just recently put out a new album titled "don't smile at me," which I have been playing on repeat since it has came out. Her mature vocals and lyrics make it surprising that she is only 15!
2. The Night Cafe
My favorite song: Mixed Signals
And now you're not mine, mine
I didn't think that I didn't need you
I just got fucked and you made the decisions
I stumbled across this band on Tumblr one day and have been obsessed ever since! Most of their music has a nice indie pop/indie rock vibe that always makes me want to drive with the windows down. They are definitely a new favorite of mine.
3. Hippo Campus
My favorite song: baseball
There goes that moonboy
With all his leaves a-growing
This indie rock band from St. Paul, Minnesota have plenty of songs that'll make you want to get up and dance around your bedroom like they do in the movies.
4. The Hunna
My favorite song: You & Me
You & me
Smoking by the hunna tree
You & me
We were meant to be
Right now, The Hunna is all I can listen to. Their music makes me miss summer and being with my friends.
5. Early Eyes
My favorite song: Take You
There’s a lot to recover from that night out
When you leaned in and whispered, “yeah I’m trying to take you down.”
Early Eyes is an indie band from Minnesota that I also discovered on Tumblr. I really recommend going on YouTube and looking at some of their live music.
