We have decided to start off the month of February with a chilled-out alternative pop playlist that is – once again – largely centered around our own emotions. This time around, however, the tracks that are to be found in this tracklist unanimously refer to our own inner perceptions, to our own relationship with our bodies as well as to our perception of the world ; these universal themes, although timeless, seem to inspire lyricists more often lately.

In our tracklist, you’ll find the excellent French artist called Vendredi sur Mer and her latest single “Le Lac” (which means “The Lake” in French). After that, you’ll get to listen to the very first single from an emerging French pop duo named Parka & Velvet, as well as one of the bonus tracks from Joanna’s debut album “Sérotonine” ; Felyce’s most famous track, “Hope”, is also to be found in the tracklist – Felyce being an artist from the top 10 of the Prix Ricard Live Music 2022 that we had personally selected in our top 10. We hope you enjoy this deep dive into the soul’s realm !

Tracklist :

  1. Le Lac – Vendredi sur Mer
  2. Vers l’océan – Parka & Velvet
  3. Soleil cendres – Anna Majidson & David Numwani
  4. Qu’est-ce que tu veux ? – Sauvane
  5. Narcisse Noire – Joanna
  6. Hope – Felyce
  7. Ton corps – Adélys
  8. Mascarade – YENDRY feat. Lous and the Yakuza
  9. Other Men – Crystal Murray & Le Diouck
  10. L’enfer – Stromae


More playlists are to be found on our Spotify profile. If you’ve enjoyed listening to this playlist, we heavily recommend you to give our “Pop & Alternative” as well as our “French Pop” playlists a listen – we regularly update them with fresh finds !

As a music web writer for several years, I have developed a particularly devoted passion for electronic and alternative musics. From the ethereal melodies of Max Cooper to the introspective music and lyrics of Banks, my radar has me listening to the wide French and international independent music scene... all of this between communication plans for independent labels and artists !
