When Green Day wrote Wake Me Up When September Ends, he didn’t anticipate the amount of amazing music that would release in September 2015. The month has only just begun, but we’ve already been treated to what seems like good music for a lifetime. Whether you like pop, rock, R&B or retro, there’s something for everyone. Good releases often fly under the radar. Luckily for you, we’ve got this covered. And once again, we curate the perfect playlist, just for you.
So, put your headphones on, lean back and relax. Here are five amazing songs that will tide you over this September:
Snakeskin – Deerhunter
If there’s one thing Deerhunter knows how to do, it’s recording catchy tunes that blend the best of pop and rock. Snakeskin is proof of just that! If the single is any indication, Fading Frontier might be an album as stellar as Halcyon Digest.
Under the Makeup – a-ha
a-ha‘s Under the Makeup is a throwback, if there ever was one. The track takes you back to the glory days of pop music. Like every other a-ha song, Under the Makeup is equal parts soulfulness, grooviness and awesomeness.
Gunga Din – The Libertines
The Libertines are back. This time, for real. After over a decade of speculation, we’ve finally been treated to the band’s comeback. Gunga Din, the first single from their album – Anthems for Doomed Youth, is the quintessential Libertines track!
Ghost – Halsey
Do you look down upon pop music? You just haven’t listened to Halsey yet. The indie pop icon is a part of the new generation of popstars keeping the genre alive and well. We’ve had Badlands on repeat since its release, and we know you will be left begging for more too.
What Went Down – Foals
Foals won over audiences and critics with Total Life Forever, and they’ve been on a roll ever since. Now, they’ve grown up and how. What Went Down, the lead single from the album of the same name, is the perfect track for the fall.
