Music is the expression of so many feelings bottled inside us. While it can express your love for the person you love or it can express the love for food. There are artists in general and indie artists in particular who are passionate about their food and they love it so much that they love to sing about it. If you belong to the list of food lovers who start humming about their favorite snacks while they are eating or even otherwise, then this is the indie playlist you should listen to right now.
Froot by Marina and the Diamonds
Although when you first listen to the song, Froot from the album Live la dolce vita with Marina and the Diamonds the title track from the album, it may seem like the singer is comparing herself with fruit, but there is more to it. It was the second track in her studio album, FROOT, and was written by Marina. The song produced by David Kosten is distinctive in its metaphor. Many people made conjectures about what it really meant when Marina let her listeners know that the song was actually about happiness. We believe her listeners felt happy listening to the song too.
Coffee by Sylvan Esso
Coffee is not really a beverage it is a whole new mood and thus it deserves the pedestal that Sylvan Esso puts it on. The college students will particularly relate to it and can get to drop their inhibitions and start dancing to it. It was the first single of Sylvan Esso and turned out to be a breakout song that established its presence in the music world. While coffee and dancing was the vehicle they used to express their feelings, what they actually spoke about is love and its universal quality.
Gooey by Glass Animals
Gooey is a song sung by the English group Glass Animals. The 2014 song is the lead single from Zaba, their debut song. The song reached the peak of its popularity after their 2020 song, Heat Waves. What does the word gooey remind you of? Well to us it reminds us of a big jar of peanut butter while we dig into it with a spoon. We believe the song created magic as it touched the right chord in the listeners. Who does not like peanut butter?
Diet Mountain Dew by Lana Del Rey
Diet Mountain Dew is a song penned by Mike Daly and Lana Del Rey and the producers of the song were none other than Jeff Bhasker and Emile Haynie. It was from Del Rey's from their album Born to Die. However, if you associate this song to be frivolous and frothy, then you are wrong, because it is anything but, instead it is a bit sad and sensuous.
Horchata by Vampire Weekend
Horchata is a song from the stable of Vampire Weekend. Members of the band Rostam Batmanglij wrote the song that was part of the album Contra on October 5, 2009. The term horchata is synonymous with the song traditional beverages which is made up of rice, sesame seeds and ground almonds. Fans of the song still love to drink horchata with the band Vampire Weekend. The song will take you back to the nostalgic young winter days.
Chocolate by 1975
Chocolate is a song from the stable of the English rock band (1975). The number was part of the third play, Music for Cars, where it was the second number, and was also part of the debut album. The song also got featured in the teaser for the film Love, Rosie. The song may not be about chocolate, perhaps it was something as addictive as chocolate.
Peaches by In the Valley Below
Peaches is a song by In the Valley Below (an American rock band). The song was part of the Peaches and Man Girl EPs and was also a key song from their album, The Belt. It was not only a chartbuster but also a part of Billboard Alternative Songs in 2016. The song is reminiscent of lazy summer days and makes you go for picking up the peach. Or make a peach cobbler and dig into it with relish.
