AKP Playlist: Mellow Autumn Vibes

misc.
1. Coffee by BTS
An older BTS track, but 'Coffee' is still a lovely and relaxing track to revisit this autumn. With very mellow and toned back rap style paired with the vocals of a very young maknae line makes this track lovely! The piano instrumental is the best part of the entire track!
2. Fall by Crush
A break-up song written about how his significant other represented all the other seasons, but now that they are apart, every day is fall for Crush! Crush never disappoints on slow ballads and 'Fall' is no exception. His falsetto works perfectly and the song is relaxing to listen to- a perfect autumn track!
3. And You? by DEAN
Though Dean's album had a number of fantastic tracks, none captured the feeling of autumn as well as the Outro track, 'And You?'. The song manages to be dramatic without sacrificing its sound, but we do wish it was longer! Dean's voice works perfectly as a complement to the soundscape of autumn.
4. Cave Me In - Gallant x Tablo x Eric Nam
Two vocalists with abilities smooth like honey and Tablo with a well-devised rap created the R&B soundscape for 'Cave Me In'. The track is gorgeous, relaxing and a total coffee shop classic-to-be! We love Eric Nam's high note and the passion in the track.
5. Crying by SISTAR
We love the dramaticism and vocal range that SISTAR employs for this track! Though SISTAR had many singles that were fun, dancey and in-your-face colorful but 'Crying' is an upbeat ballad style song that showcases each member's singing abilities! The emotion is strong and perfect for our autumn playlist!
6. Palette by IU ft. G-Dragon
A darling and sweet melody about a coming-of-age time for IU and anyone listening to the song. 'Palette' is relaxing and gorgeously written to reflect beginning a new chapter of life! With the autumn leaves falling and the colors changing, 'Palette' is the song to listen to!
7. Cigarette by Offonoff ft. Miso & Tablo
Since 'aesthetic' is a huge trend, this song seems to fall under that category perfectly. Not only does Offonoff feature amazing composer and vocalist, Miso, they also chose to feature Tablo as well! The song is simple, but written in a way that pulls the listener in for more! Our favorite part is Tablo's rap.
8. Two Melodies by Zion.T ft. Crush
Zion.T and Crush have voices that go together perfectly and on 'Two Melodies' we see proof of that once again! The track reminds us that love is everywhere, though not obvious! Similar to love, the song's melody is not simple, but retains a simplistic sound and is sad, but happy at the same time! A special type of 'love'.
9. Stay Ever by Lim Kim ft. Verbal Jint
Lim Kim has one of the most interesting and rich vocal textures, which propel so many of her songs to excellence! 'Stay Ever' has a wonderfully intriguing progression and Verbal Jint was the perfect male rap vocalist to add into the track. The track starts off in a classic ballad style, then transforms into a groovy R&B chorus.
10. Like I Do by Cherry Coke
Indie artist, Cherry Coke, has a lovely EP with autumnal songs that capture the feeling of fall perfectly! We are loving the artistic direction the artist has taken with their video for 'Like I Do' and hope to see more MVs in the future. We think that Cherry Coke is a serious artist to watch!
11. Take Me - MISO
With sweet vocals and a slow, haunting, rhythm, MISO wows us with her track, 'Take Me'! The music video featured above for the song is in collaboration with the London and Tel Aviv based animation director and visual artist Sivan Kidron. The video is a play on the classic Alice in Wonderland tale – coupled with Miso's own imaginings of unrequited love.
12. Like You by Hoody
AOMG's queen, Hoody Kim, has a wonderfully rich and delicate voice. In her track, 'Like You', which was produced by GRAY, she has a beautifully haunting video paired with her high-production track! We hope that AOMG gives Hoody the opportunity for a full-length release soon.
13. Chillin' In My House by BLNK TIME
With a star-studded cast of rappers, BLNK TIME is a group from LEGIT GOONS. It features a number of talented underground rappers who have contributed to a number of songs on the album 'Color Unique'. 'Chillin' In My House' is a toned-down and feel-good track that resonates well with listeners!
14. VLACK and VLUE by SAAY
SAAY's 'Vlack and Vlue' is a contemporary piece! This Club Eskimo member has been extremely active online with her new releases and this is one of many great tracks released by her. We think that the 'v' instead of the 'b' is a reference to XXXTENTACION pronouncing his B's as V's!
