For the magazine’s 30th playlist, we stay on our path & keep exploring the depths of pop music’s newest subgenres, which, as you may have noticed, is one of the main components of our editorial line. More organic than usual, however, our playlist explores both alternative pop and electronic, experimental pop ; whether you like synthetic textures or a soul & organic atmosphere, there is something in there for you !
We start with a song you most certainly have heard of since it has been widely used on social media : it is “Heat Waves” by the now famous band Glass Animals, but in its acoustic version, released with the deluxe edition of their album “Dreamland”. This song sets the tone of the playlist ; we then dive into various shades of sweetness with an experimental trip-hop track by Caroline Polachek, before appreciating the “killer” content of FKA Twigs, which is certainly the most accessible from all his discography – which we have been long-time fans of at hauméa. Later on, it’s Daniela Andrade’s lofi pop that bewitches us, before we let ourselves be enchanted by one of the latest track from Son Little, and the alternative beat of O’o, the new protégés of the French independent label InFiné. Finally, we end with the latest releases of two artists that we have been following closely since we discovered them on MusoSoup : Swerfey, a German artist, and Cherry Seraph, a British queer artist. Happy discovery everyone !
