Twelve songs. Seven editors. Only one playlist can come out on top in our new series. Daphne presents a lowkey pop-jazz/classical infusion (that classification made no sense but just go with it) that exudes personality and charm worthy of the title fien art.
As stated many times before in our office, Janelle Monáe is a godsend, and for the inclusion of hitsong ‘Pynk’ from her acclaimed album Dirty Computer, Daphne wins her playlist easy points from us. Indie artists Japanese Breakfast also shine through in the playlist, because indie rock deserves a space on every playlist. This playlist switches genres like the measles epidemic switches victims, so the best I can really do is label this as ‘rock’. Really earning my money on this one.
If Janelle Monáe and Frank Ocean aren’t enough to scream seductive, then country singer Angel Olsen (insert false recognition) singing heart-warming ballad “For you” would be enough to make any cold heart melt. It’s sweet Daphne. Here’s a well-earned seven for you. Listen to Daphne’s full playlist by following ‘Craccum Mag’ on Spotify.
