Listen: V-Indie Music Of The Month
Mellow sounds to watch the rain by
As the rainy season pummels us into submission, we find ourselves searching for a soundtrack to stare listlessly out of the window to. Something soothing, harmonious and quietly inspiring to help us forget the hair-raising motorcycle ride home and ease into the evening.
We have compiled this month’s V-Indie Music Of The Month list with just this sentiment in mind. From dreamy vocals and vintage vinyl cracklings on Kien’s Em An Sang Chua, to the adorable twink-twonking of Uyenkulele’s favorite four string lute on ‘Walking in the Raindrops’, to Vu’s aching heart on Chuyện những người yêu xa – this month’s selection is one to chill to.
Exceptions come in the form of the dub-step infused Du Anh Muon, though Onionn’s looping promise that she’s gonna be coming back to us (baby) is certainly hypnotic. Xo Co Cay from Lon Xon provides the comedy element with their charming ode to Circle K – everyone’s favourite convenience store (other convenience stores are available). Enjoy!
