I love music, especially classic rock and indie/folk! So, I went through my Pandora likes, Spotify playlists, and even my ITunes most played and compiled a list! Here are my Top 8 indie/folk songs at the moment!
Mumford and Sons is an iconic band, and has been since I was in high school and "Little Lion Man" was all the rage. Over the summer I went to a concert and was happy to find hundreds of other people who were just as passionate about these guys as I am!
Totally out of character for this band, but nevertheless brilliant. give it a listen!
6. Cherry Wine- Hozier
To be honest, Hozier repeats on the radio during my commute to home so much, it starts to grate my nerves a bit. However, when I hear a song like "Cherry Wine".. I can't help but replay it!
5. Best That I Can- Vance Joy
4. I Can't Go On Without You- Kaleo
Kaleo is an underground indie/folk band from Iceland. They have stunning music videos, an incredible sound and very unique vocals. If you like anything on this list, you'll probably appreciate them!
3. Give me Something- Seafret
This song is the kind of chilling that makes you want to stand on a windy mountainside, overlooking the overcast scenery with a thoughtful expression. That is to say, it's one of the most inspiring songs I've ever heard.
It was extremely hard to pick a Lumineers song, however, "Angela" is one of my most listened to as of late. I have also seen The Lumineers live, and it was one of the best nights of my life, and definitely the best concert I've ever been to. (Wesley Schultz grabbed my hand!) In any case, if you haven't heard of them or their new album, "Cleopatra", you need to reevaluate your life choices and listen to them immediately.
1. Childhood Ghosts- Joseph Charles Mettler
Joseph Mettler is a member of the band "Rabbit in the Rye", which is also one of my favorite bands, but I wanted to cite this song in particular, which is a solo piece by him. Joe also happens to be my neighbor, and I have known the family for most of my life. Personal relationships aside, I still have to cite "Childhood Ghosts" as my most listened to song lately, as well as the rest of "The Rabbit in The Rye's" music. If you enjoy anything on this list, check them out! You won't regret it! http://www.j-mettler.com/music/ http://www.rabbitintherye.com/
