Best Of: March 2018

Curator Indie Accent Team Writer Caesar Fajriansah

We're approaching the end of month, so we've curated for you a playlist that best represent this month. The songs we picked in this playlist are songs that were there for us since the beginning of this month. Whether it's an old or new songs, they never left or skipped. They might be not our favourite, perhaps at one point they are, but when they're on, we tune into it till the countdown reaches 0:00 and we couldn't justify kicking them out of our daily routine.


Ruru - Another

Ruru is a solo project of the Manila-based artist, Ru Quimbo. She began writing music in 2014, fueled by various influences of twee, alt, rnb, jazz, and bedroom pop. Ruru’s musical style draws comparison to another bedroom-pop star, Clairo.

Jay Som - Baybee

A bedroom musician which Amelia Murray would be proud of. Jay Som's latest album, Everybody Works, was released last year and received acclaim from critics. Her debut demonstrated her ability to cleanly capture the dreampop sound, blending her mellow vocals with perfect amount of fuzz.

Kainalu - Folds Like Origami

US-based one-man-band, Kainalu, is responsible for all the elements you hear througout "Folded Like Origami". Labeled as "Hawaii Fi", his songs are a tune you will probably listen from the speakers in a beach/pool party next summer.

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard - Countdown

One of the most exciting bands to come out of Australia in a long time, having released thirteen full-length studio albums since 2012, the band is noted for its energetic live performances of its 7 personnels. Watch their collaboration with Mild High Club in the video above.

Raveena – If Only

"If only” is the 3rd single of Indian-American singer Raveena which taken from her 2017's EP, Shanti. She said the inspiration behind the record was the process of healing from some shitty relationships.

Omar Apollo - Ugotme

The 20-year-old singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Omar Apollo, writes jazz-influenced pop song "Ugotme". Clocking in at only about two minutes, "Ugotme" is immensely pleasant to repeat again and again, due to its short length.

Boy Pablo – Losing You

It must be Boy Pablo if you had a good feeling this was going to be a good song from the first time you hit play. "Losing You" is new single from Norway-based Boy Pablo.

Frankie Cosmos - Jesse

Greta Kline aka Frankie Cosmos have released her third album Vessel at the end of this month. The heartwarming "Jesse" is our favorite from the new album, lo-fi production behind Greta’s angelic vocals make this track attractive and personal at the same time.

Breakup Shoes - Nicotine Dream

In 2016, the band released the five-track EP Nicotine Dream. It reached a wider audience after popular Australian YouTuber Cartia Mallan featured it in one of her videos.

Heart Like Lions - It's Not Gonna Be This Way

Hearts Like Lions Pay Tribute To ‘Stranger Things’ in "It's Not Gonna Be This Way" music video. This song is taken from the band’s debut full-length, If I Never Speak Again.

Inner Wave - Nice One

South Los Angeles-based new age garage rock group, Inner Wave, make an impactful impression with their album "Underwater Pipe Dreams", "Nice One" in the one we put on repeat this whole month.
