It's almost that time where we all start to dress a little warmer and start making memories in the cold. Though summer is my favorite season of the year, fall is a close second because I enjoy looking out the window and acting like I'm in an early 2000s film. So, in honor of the new upcoming memories, here are my top six (in no particular order) indie songs from the early 2000s for fall.
“Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood
Starting out strong, this is my first recommendation because what better song to get you in the mood for fall then this iconic single? With the opening drumbeat, the story line and that soft crying guitar whisper that we all know and love, this song truly does wonders in making you into a main character for the fall.
“Daylight” by Matt and Kim
Falling backwards and losing an hour of sleep is approaching us so quickly and I'm not ready to talk about it. But it seems like Matt and Kim were really excited about it since they want to walk to Maine during the daylight.
“Kids” by MGMT
This song is from MGMT’s album Oracular Spectacular, and to be honest, this song does such a great job of fitting the description of “spectacular.” Besides being amazing on its own, it also brings a sense of an “all eyes on you moment” because of its unique sounds and the dense storyline that it is portraying.
“Bury Us Alive” by STRFKR
This is a truly eye-opening song for fall weather because it's such a change from all the slow guitar and reverbs that are usually played during this time. This song reminds us to step out of our comfort zone and just dance!
“Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service
This song brings back nostalgia that you might not even have had. The rhythm and technical theory elements of this song evokes a rush of memories.
“If I Ever Feel Better” by Phoenix
Will I ever financially recover from the new fall decorations that are coming out every week and the weekly drinks I buy from local coffee shops? Maybe. But I know at the end of the day, Phoenix will make me feel better.
