It’s Monday, and today’s installment of Launchpad brings things down to a very soothing level. We’ve compiled an eclectic mix of songs in the vein of Odesza, Tove Lo, and everything in between.
We kick things off with Portland-based electronic duo Echos. The duo has had a prolific year and their emotional track “Take” is a testament to their success. The song grabs its listeners in the most intimate of ways, showing, via Echo’s lyrics, just what life’s difficulties might feel like.
Further down the list is “White Light,” a collaboration between Denver-based group Monarrk and Luna Blake. The future bass track is an inspiring piece that contains beautiful vocals, epic synth melodies, and enough energy to get one’s mood lifted.
Next up is a groovy midtempo track from rising artist Subaqueous. Released back in October, “Lotus Weaver” transports listeners into a psychedelic landscape filled with varied instrumentals and moments of deep self-reflection.
Our final highlight is London-based artist Tara Carosielli. The pop star’s debut track, “Leave You Lonely,” has made significant waves in the electronic world, recently hitting over 400k plays on Spotify and 62k on Soundcloud respectively. From its sexy chorus, to its gentle and swaying production, “Leave You Lonely” is a powerful example of how to make a successful musical debut.
