Do you want to impress the cool kids in your ENC1101 class? Maybe show off to your friends your extensive knowledge of underground tunes? Or, if you're like me, you're constantly looking for new music to beef up your playlist anyway. This list will hopefully show some new names that you can jam to during the upcoming week!
1. The Millennium
If you love Eagles, The Monkees, or The Beatles, this ‘60s band has unfairly been erased out of our oldies lessons. They are the exact sound you’ve been missing all your life. Check out “I’m With You” and you won’t be disappointed.
Perfect for relaxing in a hammock on campus or studying in the library, Bahamas’s smooth melodies will take you away from all of your school stress from the first note. “Your Sweet Touch” will make you feel like you truly are in the Bahamas, sipping a piña colada and forgetting all about your stats test tomorrow.
3. Bowling For Soup
Hear me out. When was the last time you heard Bowling For Soup besides the "Phineas and Ferb" theme song? They are better than you remember. Look up “Girl All The Bad Guys Want” and trust me, you’ll be blasting it on your way home from work or school before you know it.
4. Lola Amour
This band gives you the exact jazzy chill sound you didn’t know you wanted. They are the definition of cool, calm, and collected, which is sometimes just what you need. Unfortunately, they only have their four-song EP up on Spotify right now, but my favorite out of those is “Maybe Maybe.”
5. Charlie Burg
Pinning Charlie Burg to a short description is pretty much impossible. He does ballads, fun bedroom pop, and even jazz instrumentals. He has something for everyone, but my personal favorite is “Instead Of My Room.”
So, get searchin'! These bands are tried and tested (by me), so you got nothing to lose.
