You knew it was coming. You knew that we would share a list full of cheesy love songs that we’ve been saving for the past month. Ha! Actually, no. These are just really interesting songs that we think would accompany a romantic evening well. If you listen to this with your love, make sure to tell them how hip you are to find music on an indie music site. They’ll get stars in their eyes about that. Trust us. 😉
Ari Herstand – “Cabarete”
-This easy-listening rock song is perfect for setting the mood for a relaxing evening. It brings up positive vibes about the sound of the ocean and special moments between you. That said, it also has a kind of Coldplay feel to it that seems ideal for a chill background to your evening. Give it a spin and see if Herstand’s light vocal tones are for you.
Bella Musser – “One Kiss More”
-This indie pop songstress reminds me of Ingrid Michaelson. The countdown to kisses that makes up the primary element of the lyrics is… well, adorable. It’s one of those songs that can have you smiling and dancing in your seat, or more than likely making out with the one you love. Go ahead! Let love be in the air and enjoy this song with someone special.
Lauren O’Connell – “Superimposed”
-This thoughtful acoustic track from O’Connell is an unconventional love song, but you better believe it is chock full of love. The palpable sense of tension that rises in the track is fascinating. It’s about seeing someone for how beautiful they are, even when they don’t see it themselves all the time. It’s poetic and gloriously melodic. It’s dreamy in just the right way for the holiday.
Houston Heard – “Virginia”
-This song is a beautiful little love tune about missing someone you love. Heard’s style is really appealing to us. We feature a lot of acoustic singer songwriters and this is an example of what makes them so amazing. The song isn’t complex, but it captures a heart and a feeling that is ovewhelmingly relatable.
Aaron and Julia – “Slow”
-I mean I’m not going to tell you what to do with this song, but if this doesn’t make you want to slow dance… you might need to see a doctor. The combination of this chill acoustic guitar and intimate vocals is really, really nice. It’s not a big club anthem or something like that; it’s sweet, soft, subtle, and sounds like what a hug feels like. When the harmony vocals enter the track, the song unfolds like a blossoming flower.
