1. Vicktor Taiwò - Kiss You Cover
Seriously the 1D boys are awesome, but Vicktor’s raspy voice adds a sexiness to this song that the original version doesn’t have.
3. Rhye- Open
A bit of funk in the beat. Similar to Quadron, but Ryhe’s voice is absolutely stunning and super smooth.
4. RY X-Berlin
I just contemplate my whole life when I hear this song. It makes me want to quit school and go live in nature. I don’t really know why I react this way to this song, but ummm yeah it’s super good.
5. VV Brown- Substitute For Love
I feel like people just forgot about VV Brown after Shark in the water, but her voice is breathtaking. ^ Example A
6. Chet Faker- No Diggity
I love how chill this cover is. The original song is super chill but this is like 100 times more chill. (Note to self: find synonym for chill )
7. Say Lou Lou - Maybe You
Ahhh this song is refreshing. Say Lou Lou’s harmonies are killer.
8. FKA Twigs - Ultraviolet
FKA Twigs’ voice is RIDICULOUS! It so gentle. Gotta love her.
Sidenote: This is one of the less tranquil songs on this list.
10. Yuna - Someone Who Can
I know Yuna has a handful of tranquil songs and this is not one of them, but this song has such good lyrics and I relate so hard!!! Anyways, Yuna has an angelic voice and I love her so she had to be on this list.
11. Sampha - Can’t Get Close
SAMPHA! Go listen to his EP Dual This guy is incredible. he also has some really great colabs ith SBTRKT, DRAKE, Little Dragons etc
12. BANKS - Bedroom Wall
Definitely one of my best music discoveries in 2013. BANKS is dopeness personified. Super soothing voice.
13. Half Moon Run - Call Me in the Afternoon
Really folky. Love, love, love.
14. Delilah - Inside My Love
Love this remake of Minnie Riperton’s song. Delilah has a really gorgeous tone.
15. Chlöe Howl - I Wish I Could Tell You
This song is so innocent and sweet and Chlöe Howl just sounds like a darling. I love her and I can’t wait for her to blow up!
That’s all folks. Hope you like this list!
