What better time to explore indie music than when you’re under a lockdown? Here are our picks to get your worries down and volumes up.

‘Hooked’ By Brandon X Echologue

This hip-hop song is one trippy ride. Rapper Brandon and producer Echologue, both Mumbai-based, have made a quirky, gory-yet-not-creepy video. The song loosely revolves around being a spoiled Bandra boy, and how one day he was too high to handle what he felt for a girl. The psychedelic visuals only add to its charm.

‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ By Owlist

There’s nothing better than feel-good factor during such times, and ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’ By Owlist is the perfect medium. He’s taken old classics and added his own twist to them, so expect hip-hop, drums, and trap in the midst of favourites like ‘Do Lafzon Ki’ and ‘Wo Bhooli Dastan’

Drum Machine by Parekh & Singh

It returns once again. The aesthetic that won’t quit and sweet melody that’ll put a smile on your face before you know it. This easy-breezy track is all you need to uplift your spirits.

‘Enchanté’ By Jitwam
