I’ve been listening to the Underground Hits playlist on Spotify a lot recently, and I cannot recommend it enough. I have discovered tons of great new artists and songs, one of my favorites being “Islands” by an up and coming artist out of Nashville called Rynn. Based on this song, it won’t be long before Rynn breaks through and becomes a household name in the alternative music scene. “Islands” opens with a melodic, electronic beat and pitch-modified vocal samples. Rynn’s voice then comes through to match the downtempo beat and create a somewhat dark vibe. This completely changes though when the beat pauses for a slight drop, and the chorus comes through like a ray of sunshine turning the song into a much brighter track. I haven’t had time to fully listen to the rest of Rynn’s debut EP, Nightfires, but I definitely plan to as soon as I get a chance.
