Solomon Crook shared with us his top 5 favourite independent artists that you need to hear.

In October, Solomon dropped a raw new single titled ‘The Day I Thought About Dying, an immensely powerful track that will prompt you to consider the mark you would leave on this world if you were to leave it.

Check out this thoughts below –

Bon Iver – Imi
I love the production of this song, it’s a beautiful sum of Bon Iver’s sonic progression. The collage/choppy nature of the parts in this song is something I would love to incorporate into my music.

Moses Sumney – Don’t Bother Calling
I think what stands out to me about this track is Moses Sumneys beautiful vocals, they are so unique and intimate.

JPEGMafia – Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot
The way he changes the moods within this song is so interesting, I also love his production, it takes so many different parts and gives them their own space.

Daniel Caesar – Entropy
Fell in love with Daniel Caesar since I first heard ‘Get You’. He is so smooth, this song just enforces his sexual aura.

Alabama Shakes – Gimme All Your Love
One of my favourite bands at the moment; the way this song builds to intense, blaring moments to stripped back intimacy is beautiful.
