I'm a 20 years old girl with a voice that i need to raise on this platform about my preferences and opinions

Music is what most people refer to as means of escape from bitter reality but aren’t u bored of the same pop and hip-hop music? it has started to no longer provide for your comfort the same way. Isn’t it? You’re probably not able to tell that because you might not be aware of how far the boundaries of music can get.

We need a change in this choice of music, society needs peace. The word "change" has its own refreshing vibe. Change can make a difference, it can give new dimensions to your thinking, and it can make you feel a lot better. Change is more of a necessity than a choice. Gliding through the same alleyways every day of your life would get you fuzzy. Why not take a turn and experience different things? It Will refresh your mind, nurture your soul, and slightly brush off the worries of your daily life.

There are so many genres of music that can take you places and refresh your mind but not many people have been treating that as an option. Such a pity! Not only are people deprived of such beauty of life that lay in that music but also the artists suffer who are actually talented. It makes me wonder why such amazing artists are deprived of the fame that other pop stars have?

In this article, I’ll mention some of my personal favorite underrated bands/artists from different genres. These are in no particular order, all these artists are equally my favs


Michael David Rosenberg also known as Passenger is a folk singer and songwriter. He draws his inspiration from being on the road. He’s been traveling throughout his career. And well! You can say he’s an album producing machine. Each one of his albums telling a whole different story. Not only is his music beautiful but his lyrics are so heavenly, it’d transcend you into a beautiful fantasy. And a cherry on top of the cake is his frail yet melodious voice which adds to the euphony. The strumming of his guitar strings engraves a beautiful dream onto one's heart and leaves an ever-lasting memory of it. He’s one of those artists who’ll secure a special place in your heart.

Did u know: Michael was friends with Ed Sheeran in high school and it was actually him who encouraged Ed Sheeran into singing.

Lord Huron

Lord Huron is an American indie-folk band, based in Los Angeles. The band’s name was inspired by the lake which band founder Ben Schneider Grew up visiting where he would spend evenings playing music around the campfire. Their songs have a rock and roll touch, which makes me think Lord Huron must be an Elvis Presley stan. Listening to Lord Huron would make u want to slip into your boots, drape a leather jacket, and light up a cigarette while you walk down the street. Cowboy vibes! And a fedora hat would compliment it though. The music, the singing style, the voice, everything compliment each other. And with the combined talent of all band members, they present to us their masterpieces. Ben Schneider, the lead vocalist, and songwriter! He’s amazing, he literally blows soul into these songs. His lumpy and deep voice gives the songs its unique charm. They fully deserve fame and success so give them a shot, you won't regret it.

“The world ender” is really the cream of the crop and even that would be wrong to say because they’ve got such masterpieces, you can’t name them. It has to be my favorite for obvious reasons. I’m totally loving the vibe, so freakin badass! Also, notice how he howls and makes his voice lumpy. No doubt a masterpiece.

And you’d think all their songs would be the same... tsk tsk you’re wrong if you think so. “The night we met” is another song, an example which will prove you wrong. This song will have you missing the lover you never had (Quite a clichè thing to say I know but bear with my staggering humor)

The Paper Kites

The Paper Kites is an Indie-rock folk band from Melbourne, Australia. The band was formed in 2010 and consists of Sam Bentley, Christina Lacy, Dave Powys, Josh Bentley, and Sam Rasmussen. Melodious tunes combined with the rich and mellow vocals would make you sway as they take you on a journey to a magical world of their own. The melancholy in the vocals would seep through your skin into your soul and soothe it like nothing else. It's not just a band but an experience, every song is an experience. Coming to music, its electro- indie-folk with a little bit of rock, an amazing combination, totally different from what you’ve heard. Its something to listen to while you head out to the city at night. The paper kites have released 6 EP’s and their recent one “Twelvefour” is a freakin hit, I’m hooked to it. Every time I want to relax I play paper kites, that’s the first thing I think of.

Cigarettes After Sex

Cigarettes after sex is an American ambient pop band from El Paso, Texas, formed in 2008. Their music is a beautiful blend of bass guitars, slow drums, and the high pitched soft harmonizing voice of the vocalist. Also let me mention that a vocalist is a man, which makes it more appreciable as to how he can soften his voice to this extent. The sound of the band is quite calm and relaxing, something to listen to while you’re falling asleep. The theme of the songs is mainly dark, addictive, and obsessive love. And one thing that you’d notice about these songs is that every song is related to the other whether it’s the lyrics, the music, or the tune. This band’s songs will make your heart flutter. Its songs depict true human emotions.
