Music To Take A Break To
Drop everything and take a breather, with Andie
featuring artists like
Mura Masa • The Killers • Wilco • Neil Young • The Kooks • May Erlewine
After a really long day, it’s nice to just sit back and listen to some good music. And I’m pretty sure you know the feeling I’m talking about. Music is such a good breather at the end of the day, or what’s more in the middle of the day when you just feel overwhelmed. It guides you in taking a step back and to just simply…enjoy the little things. And I don’t know about you, but even just listening to a single three-minute track can count as my break for the day.
The tracks in this playlist are meant to ease your mind. The voices are slow, the instruments are mellow, and the lyrics are something that I’m sure we can all relate to in some way. It’s also the perfect balance of slow, tranquil, and light. Now, it’s really beautiful when you come to think about it. Music has that certain effect to completely change your mood or state into something so utterly calm. And at times, you’ll catch yourself not worrying about a single thing because you’re just so immersed with all the melodies and lyrics– the best feeling, hands down.
So c’mon, take a breather with me and these mind-calming tracks.
China – Furns
4 February 2022
Its really beautiful when you think about the symbolism behind this song. Because its really all about love- how strong love really is.
Love Songs on the Radio – Mojave 3
27 January 2022
Love Songs on the Radio– It’s dragging you to a wave of sultry melodies and a kind of “hypnotizing” vocal tone.
Fly Away – My Brothers And I
23 January 2022
The mellow tone, soft and melting drop, and the meaning. It’s just an overall mind-calming track.
Side A – Alohaha
20 January 2022
What a unique concept of a track. 15 minutes of 4 whole tracks. All fitting perfectly in this playlist because it just…makes you sink; in a good feeling type of way.
So We Won’t Forget – Khruangbin
12 January 2022
Of course I had to add a Khruangbin track. And this one is my ultimate favorite. The percussion, instruments, and vocals– it’s a track that has to be in the soundtrack of my life.
Better Than – Lake Street Dive
6 January 2022
Lake Street Dive is the best mix of pop, rock, jazz, and R&B. One of the soulful tracks on their album that I just had to add.
Someday (triple j Like A Version) – Julia Jacklin
2 January 2022A cover of a classic turned into so much more, by Julia Jacklin. This track is literally always in my On Repeat…
Sweet Bird – Young Hunting
29 December 2021
Melting and dreamy sounds, but the lyrics are all about that type of love we’ve experienced once or twice in our life…
Pack a Day – Charlie Sztyk
26 December 2021
An emotional song, but it’s just so smooth that you’ll catch yourself singing with it. And another thing that’ll get you hooked? The guitar.
Mississippi Queen – Erin Rae
22 December 2021
It’s all about those gentle symphonies and Erin Rae’s voice that just soothes your soul, making you feel so warm.
Southern Wild – Honeywater
19 December 2021
The connection within this song is something else. The lyrics tell a story, and you’ll seem to get so hooked on it.
Why Would I Let You Go – Sondre Lerche
17 December 2021
The Sondre Lerche track we didn’t know we need to hear. It’s too beautiful to describe, you should really just give it a listen.
Andie constantly thinks of music as an escape to a whole other place. It also brings out this different side of her that only music can. Like, you ever have a bad day, but when you listen to this particular song or shuffle this certain playlist, everything seems better? Yeah, that's pretty much how it makes her feel too. And for her, music has to be playing everywhere– as in everywhere. It's like she has a soundtrack for anything. She can't stop writing or talking about it. It's something she can talk about with you for hours and hours. Music helps her get lost but in the best way possible.
