Indie R&B. Vocals that make you melt, paired with gorgeous saxophone sounds and dreamy background vocals. Parts of the lyrics, though not especially profound, just hit me:
“Matter over mind if we being honest
’Cause you wander through ya thoughts like a broken promise”
“But if we just spoke, like we meant it
Would you reference
This open part of me”
Hip hop lo-fi, with electronic R&B vibes. One of my new favorite artists of the season. Perfect music for unwinding.
Hip hop/R&B. The aforementioned Joji is featured in this track, and the Higher Brothers rap a few lines in Chinese—-gold. For fun, I looked up HB’s other songs and the lyrics to Made in China are hilarious: “My chains, new gold watch, made in China…The responsibility I feel is like the Chinese national team winning respect in swimming…My lyrics are so great / I was Li Bai in a past life”
Alternative pop with R&B vibes. Good late night song.
Indie pop with a future bass line. Faintly reminds me of Imagine Dragons.
Alternative hip-hop. My friends Aubrey and Anthony came up with choreo for this track during MIT Dancetroupe’s finals week workshop. Love.
Pop. Listening to this song while walking home alone in the evening will make you really sentimental, can confirm. Hayley came up with some beautiful choreo for this during her finals week workshop.
R&B/Soul. Airy vocals, light guitar line. Woke up one day and had this stuck in my head.
