It is not a secret that I am obsessed with the music of the 80s. Whenever I get into a deep discussion involving music, I will bring up the synth-pop and advancement in rock. There was one genre that surfaced during the changes in the music. NEW WAVE. New Wave was like if the rock stylings of the 70s and the synth-pop of the 80s had a little alternative love child. New Wave started in the mid-70s with punk rock, but the new wave of the 80s is music more significant in the growth of the genre. This music encapsulates the beginnings of Alternative music. I’ve decided to compile a list of songs that most influenced the future of Alternative. https://giphy.com/gifs/80s-culture-club-boy-george-10ufXpRpHLDcvS This

Let It All Out - COIN https://giphy.com/gifs/coin-simple-romance-uFi3DC0JMgdodRW8A2 COIN is already an alternative pop icon with songs “I Don’t Wanna Dance” and “Talk Too Much.” It does not come as a surprise that their entire new album Dreamland is amazing. “Let It All Out” is one of the slower songs from the album, but that just adds to the emotion. This is a very emotional song that serves as a great release to all these bottled up feelings. The video shows a butterfly leaving the cocoon which is a perfect metaphor for the emotion in this song. Double Denim Hop - Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard https://giphy.com/gifs/dancing-crush-adult-swim-ehirqEd054SnC Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard has been my favorite new band on the alternative scene. They have such a classic rock sound. While
It’s not quite Spring, but these songs will pull you through the last cold weeks of Winter. Specifically, these songs aren’t quite the full Spring vibe, but they are right at that line of change to Spring. If you have bad allergies, here is your warning to run far away from this Spring Themed Music Blog. Ways to Go - Grouplove Most of Grouplove’s music is just spring vibes with their energetic indie sound. I put “Ways to Go” mainly so I can make the pun that we still have a ‘ways to go’ before spring is here. https://giphy.com/gifs/Brockmire-funny-spring-training-richard-kind-M8oqtgDzoqzx2qr0Hz Australia - The Shins This song is just so cheerful sounding with not so cheerful lyrics. Just like a 47 degree day toward the end of
Colony House is a band that should be on everyone’s Alternative playlists. If you haven’t listened to their earlier albums, you are truly missing out on amazing Alt. Rock. The album that introduced me to them was their 2017 album Only the Lonely. “ You and I,” “1234,” and “You Know It” pulled me in to follow up with this incredible band. If you are a fan of Alternative, you are going to be a fan of this band. https://giphy.com/gifs/rcqxcl5DGhM9q Now that you went and listened to their album Only the Lonely, you are here to hear what I have to say about the latest album Leave What’s Lost Behind. The album starts with an orchestral song that hits you in your
Here’s Some Alternative I wanted to make a playlist for you of Alternative that I have been finding on TV shows and movies. These are the songs that stood out to me, but most I couldn’t add to the station. Some are new, and some are old. And some are barely alternative, but ALL of these songs are bops. Everyone Looks Like Everyone - The Pack a.d. Found on Letterkenny, this song popped up at the end of the first episode right after Wayne decided to start fighting again. This song has fighting energy to it. Definitely my favorite song from the show. https://giphy.com/gifs/cravetvcanada-easter-cravetv-kFkYRveWArRR98ms8d Cold War - Cautious Clay Booksmart is an amazing movie with even better music. It is the Superbad for Gen Z. This
