2) AL MUR – Duende
Al Mur is an independent artist from the United States. His music is chillwave, downtempo, lo-fi beats, and lounge, with some electronic style. On Spotify all his songs were released recently, his latest release Duende is definitely one of his best songs yet!
The song starts off with a very soft and melody sound, a bit nostalgic, and slowly builds up into a beautiful electronic beat with some guitar riffs added in as well.
It’s a great mixture between electronic music and acoustic instruments which makes it feel like two different genres merged into one song perfectly!
There are no vocals in this track overall making it perfect for relaxing or studying while listening to it on your headphones or while working on something else at home or work during your break time!
You’ll definitely want to listen through this one again once you’ve heard it once because there are so many layers going on in each section of this song that will keep you coming back for more every time! Please follow the artist on Spotify.
3) V-TRAIN – Sunset On The BLVD
V-TRAIN is an independent artist from the US with a love for instrumental music. He is known here among the producers for his cinematic soundtracks and chillout vibes.
His song ‘Sunset on the BLVD’ is one of the best in my opinion. It’s a beautiful soundtrack that will make you want to relax or just close your eyes and listen to it. The song starts off slowly with a warm piano melody, but then evolves into an upbeat groove that makes you want to wave your head!
V-TRAIN has also released many other singles this year, also chill out and acoustic, or soundtrack/film style. All of them are equally as good as Sunset on the BLVD – if not better! If you like these artists check out some of his other music and follow him on Spotify.
4) JONATHAN GROW – Le Vol
If you’re looking for some new music to listen to while studying or relaxing, look no further than Jonathan Grow‘s Le Vol.
This song is the perfect mix of classical, cinematic, instrumental, acoustic, chillout, and soundtrack, it’s perfect for a study music playlist.
It has an easy sound that will help you focus on your work without being too distracting. The track is also edgy enough to keep things interesting and upbeat enough to keep you energized!
The song really shines when it comes to creating a mood—it’s super easy listening to, but also gives off vibes of some excitement sometimes. It’s the perfect song for studying or just chilling out after a long day at work!
Jonathan Grow’s other songs are equally as amazing—you can find his full album on Spotify, please follow the artist!
5) DM ASCENSION – Affinity
I recently discovered this band, DM ASCENSION, and I’m loving their music. It’s very chill out in nature—easy listening. It’s got a beautiful, relaxing groove that makes me want to just sit back with a glass of wine and let the music wash over me.
I love how they incorporate elements from different genres into their songs, like jazz and classical. The song “Affinity” is a great example of this—it starts out with some simple keyboard chords, then adds in some light drums and bass lines to give it a more danceable feel, but then it slows down again at the end of the track with another simple piano melody.
So if you’re looking for something relaxing or easy listening to listen to while working on something or just chilling out at home, this artist is definitely worth checking out! Follow the artist on Spotify.
6) VINTZ DESERT – Enemy
The first time I heard VINTZ DESERT‘s music, I was completely hooked. I’ve been listening to him for days now, and I always find myself coming back for more.
His music is a mix of indie-folk, singer-songwriter, acoustic, and cinematic—and for me, the male vocals are great, but it’s all about the female vocals that came as a surprise. At times it sounds like she could be singing from the bottom of a canyon or from the top of a mountain; other times it’s as if she’s right next to you telling you a story.
It’s amazing how she can convey so much emotion in just one song. And that’s why I love her music so much—it makes me feel things!
This particular track is called “Enemy.” It starts out with some soft acoustic guitar strumming and then builds into something beautiful and powerful—all without losing any of its subtlety or complexity.
As soon as this song comes on my playlist, my whole body relaxes into it—the lyrics are so easy to sing along with that I feel like we’re sitting together in our living room having a conversation over coffee (I know… I’m weird). But really, this song is just so comforting
7) PALE COUSIN – The Other Side
The Other Side by Pale Cousin is a lovely, relaxing track that combines jazz, Irish folk, and acoustic elements to create a sound that will transport you to another world.
The song begins with a very soft Jazz melody that gently builds in complexity as it introduces new instruments and themes. The percussion is subtle and atmospheric, while the piano adds a sense of drama.
As the song progresses, it continues adding more layers of sound until you feel like you’re floating through space. The instrumentation is complex yet cohesive; every instrument feels like it belongs in this space together.
This song would be perfect for a film soundtrack or documentary focusing on nature or travel—it’s got that cinematic feel to it!
8) GMBT LIFE – His Voice Is Sweet
I have been following this band, GMBT LIFE, for a while now, and I really love their work. Their music is so beautiful and soothing, and it has such a soft, peaceful sound that I can listen to it for hours on end.
Recently, I’ve been listening to their song His Voice Is Sweet on repeat. It’s an acoustic track with vocals from the lead singer of the band, who has an amazing voice. I can literally say that his voice is so sweet.
As a follow up to their previous collaboration with Mike Ladd, “Ten Minutes”, GMBT Life is releasing “His Voice Is Sweet” as the lead track from their debut album. The song’s sweetness comes from the slow tempo and melancholy in it that lend it some strength.
I would definitely recommend this song if you’re looking for something that will help you relax after a long day or if you just want something to put on while you’re having a reflexive moment—it really helps set the mood!
Please follow them on Spotify to support the lead singer’s sweet voice, I mean, to support the band.
9) FRAN LUSTY – Kiss Me Sober
Fran Lusty is a UK-based singer-songwriter whose acoustic sound has been described as a “soft band sound” by reviewers. Her song “Kiss Me Sober” is a love song that features easy listening and nostalgic elements.
The song starts with soft vocals, which are accompanied by a quite sweet guitar strumming and piano notes. The song then builds up to a chorus that is more upbeat and energetic than the rest of the track.
The chorus repeats some times throughout the song, but each time it goes through a slight change—the vocals become louder and more harmonious, while the instruments become more dynamic. This creates a feeling of tension and release in both harmony and rhythm.
This song would be great for the film industry. A scene with this soundtrack would transport the audience to another dimension. Please follow the artist on Spotify and support her.
10) GREY TOWER HEIGHTS – By The Sea
By The Sea by Grey Tower Heights is a beautiful, relaxing song that’s perfect for a quiet night at home. It has a classic sound that’s reminiscent of the folk music of yesteryear, but with a modern twist.
The male and female vocals are very clear and easy to understand. The acoustic guitar playing is top-notch, and the drumming adds just enough rhythm to keep things interesting.
This song is great for studying or reading—it’s soft and melodic, so it won’t distract you too much, but it’s also not too boring or repetitive that it sends you into a lullaby-like trance. It’s a nice balance between being relaxing enough to help you focus on your work without being too dull or distracting.
Pay attention to their division of voices, what an atmosphere they create, it’s very emotional.
The end is more euphoric but still easy listening, I also like the cinematic effects, waves sound and the weather sensation. Please listen to them and follow this amazing talent on Spotify, they deserve it.
