Sounds COOL(S): Songs To Lose (And Find) Yourself To

You’re over your Spotify mixes, your YouTube playlists are becoming repetitive, and wading through your muso friend’s ever-pretentious song suggestions is less appealing than listening to Nickelback’s “Photograph” on repeat for the rest of time. We get it. To relieve your decision fatigue, we’ve asked the hottest rising artists to compile their favorite tracks of the minute.

Here, Gallant shares the songs to listen to next time you want to spiral your way into self-discovery.


((( O ))), “Offline”

Your CD has a scratch in it, but it’s cool: It’s looping your favorite part. Then you forget what you’re doing. You zone.



Cuco, “Feelings”

Everything seems normal, but then it starts to get a little off—like everything is the same but it bends. You’re probably thinking too much.



Goldlink ft. Ari PenSmith, “Joke Ting”

You’re in the other dimension or whatever it is—you don’t even question shit at this point, you just vibe to this.



Noé, “La Fève”

One of the best things I’ve ever heard in my life. The best thing you’ve ever heard in yours. You’re lost in time and space and you orbit around this forever.



DEAN, “Howlin’ 404”

Now you realize you’ve lost your mind but you’re riding the wave. This shit goes hard. I love it.



Dua Saleh, “Warm Pants”

This is vibes. Who cares if you’re lost? You don’t even care.



Ama Lou, “Tried Up”

Song is in a minor and gives you Alicia Keys songs-in-a-minor vibes. You start to come back. 



PREP ft. Shownu & So!YoON!,  “Don’t Look Back”

The light is at the end of the tunnel but you’re not in a rush, so you walk slowly. 



Khalid, “Intro”

And then you reflect—you’re in the rabbit hole—Digi’s sounds here are crazy.

UMI, “Down to Earth”

And UMI brings you back. Thank you.
