Music in it's simplest, most basic purpose is to convey and express oneself through an arrangement of sounds. Though the definition of music can vary from people to social contexts, we can all agree that it directly affects our emotions one way or another. Whether if it drops you into a sob-fest or shoots you into pure ecstasy, music is made to change how you feel. It's no mystery why you tend to choose happy-go-lucky songs on a beautiful day, or why you seek out dark songs on the worst day of your life. We honor those who make it their mission to stir the big pot of emotions in this week's volume of Feels Friday.
This particular set of songs slap hands with soul and r&b. An intricate, suave weave of words meant to hose down your inner being. You won't find the likes of Lil Wayne or Eminem in here. It's all about the washdown of the slow flow, caressing you with ever utterance. Through the silky vocals of Alina Baraz and the goosebump-inducing falsettos of Gallant, you'll cruise through a plethora of styles all exuding a passionate mood that sets it all off with a gentle touch. It's love. It's hate. It's lust. It's fate.
Time to go on a feels trip.
