The rain is pouring, and instead of being curled up in bed with a good book and a hot chocolate, you decide to switch it up. You pour yourself a glass of wine, sit at your window sill, watch the rain pour, and reflect on life — I mean, what better time to do that than a gloomy day, when you’d rather just stay in anyway, right? To complement your rainy day blues, we’ve curated this playlist to keep your thoughts company.
Towers – Bon Iver
Gloomy day reflection without some Bon Iver is incomplete. Enough said.
Theme: Old love
The Breach – Dustin Tebbutt
Sadness, loss, and melancholy — you can hear it with every word.
Yellow Light – Of Monsters and Men
The music in this song is so catchy, and so unique — maybe even a little bit mystical.
Theme: Hope and confusion
Welcome Home – Radical Face
Radical Face makes us feel a certain type of way. His songs have so much emotion in them; you can’t listen to them just once.
Barcelona – George Ezra
You’ll be wishing that you too could escape this gloominess and go to Barcelona.
What Sarah Said – Death Cab for Cutie
This one builds anxiety in such a beautiful way, and leaves you questioning.
Theme: Nervous reflection
Leopold Street – The Paper Kites
The Paper Kites have a skill of making even the saddest song not sound too sad.
Theme: Nostalgia and loss
See You Soon – Benjamin Francis Leftwich
“If you get time, come back and be mine.” That’s so sad, but he’s also so hopeful. If only we could all be like that…
Theme: Reflection and hope
