In the mood to discover some new music? Fear not, we’ve got you covered! I compiled a list of 10 songs that I’ve been jamming to, each by an artist that I consider up-and-coming. Make sure to follow The Spread on Spotify, where you can find this playlist!
“Bad Dream/No Looking Back” by Syd (2017)
This song is a 2017 take on ’90s RnB style. ’90s RnB is the best type of RnB, so what’s not to like?
“Coffee” by Grace (2016)
Her voice reminds me of a modernized Amy Winehouse.
“Comfortable” by Bella Dose (2018)
While this girl group has only one song out right now, they give me major Latina Pussycat Dolls vibes.
“Human” by Rag’n’Bone Man (2017)
This is probably the most well-known song out of this playlist, but the artist’s raspy voice is a force to be reckoned with!
“i can’t breathe” by Bea Miller (2017)
Miller’s songs are poetry. This one’s a particularly good “I’m in my feels” type of song.
“pink skies” by LANY (2016)
I just recently discovered this song, but it gives off a “cool alternative Tumblr kid” sort of feeling, so we’re going to run with it.
“The Soliloquy” by Noah Mac (2018)
Noah’s music can’t be put into a box; his creativity makes for truly unique music. This is his latest single.
“SummerThing!” by Afrojack & Mike Taylor (2015)
This song isn’t really new, but I recently discovered it and it’s the actual best song for running and working out.
“Tattoo (How ‘Bout You)” by In Real Life (2018)
These guys have only been a band for six months, and they are already nominated for the iHeartRadio “Best Boyband” Award. Every song they’ve released is a definite banger, and I may be a little bit in love with all five of them (it’s fine, really).
“These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” by Haley Reinhart (2017)
This modern cover of the Nancy Sinatra classic is truly impeccable. Reinhart (a Chicago native!) debuted her soulful voice on the 10th season of American Idol.
Happy listening, everybody!
