I hold the unpopular opinion that Radiohead is a pop band. Because, I say, you can’t realistically be called alternative when half the world knows and loves every song you’ve ever published.
Nothing against Radiohead of course. But, let me show you a bunch of songs that I dug up throughout the years. Chances are you haven’t heard them yet.
These songs each have <1000 listens on Spotify. And under 10 views on Youtube, hey ho!
And if you’re reading this blog as a teenager, with an ambition to be really alternative, this is gold. You get the point. Because if all your friends are “different” in the exact same way, then none of them really is. You will be. You’re the person who discovered the goods.
Without further ado, my three favorites from the list:
- Otik: Blasphemy
- Foundhim / Ponette: I’m Alone (Youtube link — with the exclusive opportunity to be one of their 21 monthly listeners!)
- Yuuki Sakai: Pol Gaso (Youtube link)
Go ahead and support the artists with your attention!
