I finally found an Indie Jazz track that has a similar musical style with the Deftones, yes the metal band Deftones. Spare 2 minutes of your precious time to read this article to find out why.
It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon, and you’re just chilling in your flat. It’s the golden hour and you’re holding a glass of your favorite beverage, whilst staring at the orange rays of the sun peeking through your window facing the ocean. You hear the calm crashing of waves outside, and this is amplified by a familiar salty sea breeze flowing gently through your skin. This is the absolute dreamy experience for anyone, and this track exudes that specific vibe. Listen to it on our playlist J
“Might never get better” is an Indie Jazz track by Marian Carmel. If you have a taste for Jazz, then you will definitely love this track. The vocals on this song is haunting and calming at the same time. It’s like listening to Clairo singing a jazzy tune. Aside from the dreamy riffs of the guitars and piano, you’ll know it’s a jazz track by how Marian delivers her haunting vocals throughout. You may think she’s going to sing a familiar note at the end of each inflection, but she doesn’t. She puts her own flavor by going to a more jazz approach. I may use this as an odd example but if you listen to the Deftones, they employ a similar method. Chino Moreno goes for certain jazz progressions in his singing, despite them being a heavy metal band. It’s a quite complicated and a bit technical, but trust me it sounds great. Overall, this track is technically sound, unique, and worth listening to on a daily basis.
Marian Carmel is a Filipino singer-songwriter based in Singapore, who takes influence from soulful R&B tunes reminiscent of Emily King and Lianne Le Havas. Her lush vocals breathe life into the melancholic nature of her songs, which are often born out of catharsis.
