Over the past week I have been looking through my music library trying to find some inspiration and realized that a majority of my favorite artist are not one but two people. D Y N A M I C D U O ‘ S! Duo’s just so happen to be my favorite thing when it comes to music. Two people making something that is absolutely amazing is mind blowing.
So to show my devotion to dynamic duo’s in the music business I decided to share four of my favorite duo’s in the indie and alternative music industry.
1.) MATT & KIM
Matt and Kim, Kim and Matt. They are my spirt animal! I love Matt and Kim like an eternal flame. I am crazy about them and I will never stop listening to their music. They have such an upbeat, happy sound that always puts a smile on my face and makes me want to dance. Their a band who’s music will last long after they do.
FAVORITE SONG: CAMERAS (2011)
MOST POPULAR SONG: DAYLIGHT
2.) OH WONDER
Oh Wonder has been on a dramatic rise to fame this past year with their hit single “Lose It” exploding on Soundcloud and warming it’s way into our hearts. I remember when I first listened to their single on Soundcloud, I was hooked, I knew I had to find out more about this band. And then I listened to their self titled album “Oh Wonder”, I knew this duo was special. Their music reminds me of a cross between the sad thoughtfulness of Daughter, the upbeat save yourself sound of Florence and the Machine and some other third thing.
FAVORITE SONG: DRIVE
MOST POPULAR SONG: LOSE IT
I’ve mentioned HONNE before on the blog and how unique they are as a group. All of their songs tell a story, and you can almost visualize the experience they’ve went through. I love artist that can make you feel something, and experience things along with them.
FAVORITE SONG: NO PLACE LIKE HOME
MOST POPULAR SONG: WARM ON A COLD NIGHT
4.) FOLDED LIKE FABRIC
Folded Like Fabric is one of the newer bands I’ve been listening to recently, it’s only been about a month since my cousin introduced me to them and since then I’ve been obsessed. I was even more excited when I found out it was just two guys writing songs. Their still new but their sound is strong, solid and self assured. Their music is the perfect mix of moody indie music to a catchy alternative beat. Plus there is no better name than Folded Like Fabric.
FAVORITE SONG: FALLING AND YOU CAUGHT ME
MOST POPULAR SONG: LUXURIES
And, the ultimate dynamic duo…..
HALL AND OATS
My favorite song, and the favorite song of everyone with a heartbeat is….
