Ever have one of those off days where you’ve tried (almost) everything to turn that frown upside down but nothing’s worked? This playlist just may be your answer. Here are eight indie songs you will wish you knew sooner to instantly improve your mood!
Sister of Pearl – Baio
This is the ultimate “get-out-of-that-funk” song. Baio’s intention for this song was for it to be a “feel-good throwback pop song,” and that’s exactly what it is. After just one listen, you’ll be humming along and have it playing in your head for the rest of the day.
Wild – Royal Teeth
Imagine this: you’re on a road trip, and you want to pump up the mood, but you’re not sure what to play… this is your song! The sun is shining, the wind is blowing, and you’re singing at the top of your lungs — that’s what we envision when we hear this song.
Good Girls – LANY
LANY always does a really, really good job with synth-driven music, and this one is no exception. We bet “Good Girls” will have you either tapping your foot or bobbing your head, if you’re not completely jamming out to it.
Let’s Go – Matt and Kim
From the first second of this song, you’ll be hooked. Let all your worries go, and dance!
Young Blood – The Naked and the Famous
Nothing but good vibes and happiness with this one. Light, dreamy, and fun — enough said.
You and I – Crystal Fighters
The Crystal Fighters have a sound that you don’t really come across very often, but in our opinion, that’s what makes their music so special. This song is a love child of all the best instruments combined – trust us!
Seeing Stars – BØRNS
How can you feel down when you’re listening to a song with such happy lyrics? Imagine your dream boy/girl singing this to you, and tell us you don’t have a smile on your face.
Carried Away – Passion Pit
Pick any Passion Pit song to listen too, and right after, you’ll feel a load lifted of your shoulders. Their rhythm has a way of making you feel like all your troubles are in a far, far away world.
