One of the artists to watch for this year is Rex Orange County, aka Alex O’Connor, who’s coming to Manila for an already-sold out concert on May 16, 2020 as part of his Pony Tour. The 21-year-old London-based artist is responsible for chill but feel-sy tunes like “Loving Is Easy” and “Best Friend.”
If you’re a big fan of Rex Orange County’s music and are up for discovering other artists, here are other note-worthy musicians to add to your playlists:
Just like Rex Orange County, Cuco is another 21-year-old singer-songwriter who also produces his own ~dreamy~ music. He gained much attention for his track “Lo Que Siento.”
His chill beats and guitar strums are perfect for when you just want to hang out in your bedroom and bop to good music. His song “Another Summer Night Without You” might sound familiar to TV show junkies—it’s one of the soundtracks of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why Season 3.
Clairo is another 21-year-old artist best known for her bedroom pop hits like “Pretty Girl,” which she literally recorded in her own home.
Similar to Rex Orange County’s songs, fellow English artist Tom Misch is a master of soulful but laid-back tracks. Try adding Misch's "Movie" and Rex Orange County's "Always" in a playlist together if you haven't yet.
If you’re looking for something with a local flavor, rising singer-songwriter Paolo Sandejas’ serenades might be more of your taste. Put on "After Hours" on a slow-paced evening for the ultimate ~chill~ mood.
