Winter playlist

This is a small list of songs I love listening to on a winter day. I highly recommend these for someone who has a stressful holiday season and needs something to help calm them down. These songs may not be good for a high school rager, but they are sure to soothe your soul.


“About You” by xxyyxx

With reversed lyrics and the snagged words of Beyonce, this song is quite repetitive, but maintains its chill and relaxing vibe.
If I Believe You” by the 1975

The selling point for this song is its nice beat and really good choir vocals in the background.
Gooey” by Glass Animals

I love this song because it is relaxing, yet it maintains an upbeat vibe.
River” by Leon Bridges

Bridges has his own style of vintage music that is much different than most modern artists. “River,” one of his slowest songs, gives the listener a feeling of home.
“Cigarette Daydreams” by Cage the Elephant

This song has a slight rock beat with slow verses that highlight the drums, guaranteeing a relaxing effect.

“About You” by Colouring

Colouring uses a mix of indie pop and techno instrumentals to create this chill-sounding beat.

“Harveston Lake” by Johnny Rain

The vocals in this breakup song are guaranteed to relax you.
“You’re the One That I Want” by Lo-Fang

This slow remix of the song from Grease is way cooler than you’d expect.
“I’m With You” by Grouplove

The full minute intro this song has pairs perfectly with the soft vocals in the verses.
“Rum Rage” by Sticky Fingers

The deep lyrics that reggae band Sticky Fingers created for this sad song match perfectly with the acoustic guitar.

“Godspeed” by Frank Ocean

Ocean always delivers with his amazing vocals and meaningful lyrics. In this song, he tells his love goodbye and wishes them well.

“Hippy Hill” by Grouplove

This song has great contrast with its male and female lead vocal duo that matches perfectly to create beautiful harmonies.

“Thinkin Bout You” by Frank Ocean
The vocals on this song are not only impressive but are also paired nicely with the slow drum beats and string in the background.

“Give it to Me” by HOMESHAKE

This song is very unique due to its lack of lyrics, but it has nice instrumental sections that are relaxing.
