Just a quick appreciation post for contemporary indie rock love songs. What are some of your favorite love songs in various genres? Here are three of my favorite indie rock love songs.
The song "Lilacs" by Waxahatchee received a lot of play on Sirius XMU a few years ago. I love hearing it whenever it shows up in their rotation. It was on the station yesterday when I caught it. I then listened to it a few more times on YouTube. I'm a sucker for a good lyric, and this line knocks me out: "I won't end up anywhere good without you."
Another song I hear often on XMU is "True Love" by Hovvdy. The simplicity of the lyrics work for me..."You comfort me, Rosy"... and the imagery works for me too...
"Show off your new dress
Spin around for me
Like a blue sky I get up so high
You sure shine in the color
In that shade of pink"
To end with a perfect song... "Geometry" by Rubblebucket
"When you talk to me
I start to believe
I can believe in myself
When you're far out to sea in your personal hill
Draw a line to me
And I'll draw a line to you
Let's make geometry"
I just love the everyday life stuff in this song:
"I woke up thinking the same thing
What you want to do today?
I guess I'd go for a walk again
But Alex said it might be raining"
It's all so good:
"I like you
You like me too
That's why I'm callin' on you"
These songs will be in my head all day 😍
