I have been on a real search for good bands that are pushing the boundaries, creating new sounds, and that are just not being played all day long on the radio. It has been really difficult, so I’ve stuck to my favorite songs that I just never get tired of since they’re so original. Some of the songs are a few years back but still stand strong yet I can’t believe people still haven’t caught on. So I really want to share a few and hopefully you all can pass the word along and give them the credit they truly deserve…
- Sparks- Neon Hitch
Neon Hitch is edgy, a real beauty, and Romani! At the end of the video you get a glimpse of her interesting background. She once lived in India and seemed to stick to her aspirations of seeing the world. True inspirer, makes me want to stick my dreams. Somehow that really translates into her beats. She’s got a similar sound to Natasha Bedingfield, but much more amped and bold. If you’re into pop-electronic music you’ll absolutely love her
2. Overloaded- Joan As Police Woman & Benjamin Lazar Davis
I can not get enough of this song. Whenever I feel pumped, full of energy, and ready to take on the day I have to play this. It pains me that numbers on this video is so low. The sound is so catchy, contagious, and inventive. The video even features Portlandia’s Fred Armisen who definitely captures the essence of this song. No doubt this an excellent pair and I’m sure much is in store for the future for these two, but let’s make that sooner than later. I would say this a hit for rock-pop listeners.
3. Fevers-Mr Little Jeans
Mr Little Jeans is no mister at all, just a gorgeous gal with a fierce voice and presence. Her voice glides along in such glistening softness, like buttah (food references are the best for me). She brings some great vibes that bring make you wanna shout out with real feminine power. The song is far from typical bubble gum pop, but more like a kick in your step, see my womanly muscles pop. She even writes her own songs, can’t get much better than that. Indie pop listeners this one’s for you…
4. Paraffin- Meadowlark
You may try, but you will not succeed if you resist the urge to sing along to this one. Ironically named after the bird, Meadowlark keeps a tranquil beat and flow much like a bird in this song. The band brings positive vibes while really transpiring real emotion in the sounds especially with that sweet voice. It’s truly infectious and pretty much caters to any mood and perks me up. The originality is really what will blow you away. If you’re simply into Indie you gotta try this.
