I picked these songs to help inspire sounds for the new project I’m working on. I named it Antimatter bc that’s the name of my project. I grew up listening to rap, alternative, pop punk, and reggaeton so I’m looking to create something that incorporates all of that. Picked current hits from these different genres.
I wanted to share the music that inspired my songwriting style at a young age, the music THESE WOLVES was raised on. I grew up in the 90’s and the first band that I fell in love with was Nirvana.
Kurt Cobain made me pick up a guitar and make noise but Duncan Sheik and Elliott Smith taught me how lyrics can move people. I learned quiet to loud dynamics and how to tell a story through lyrics and melody listening to these artists.
I experimented through the years songwriting, trying to meld what I love: the vulnerability of Nirvana’s “Dumb” or Cold’s “Bleed”, the heaviness of Linkin Park’s “One Step Closer” or KoRn’s “Here To Stay”, with the excitement and unpredictability of Foo Fighters’ “Monkey Wrench” and The Used’s “Take Me Away” and incorporate it in my music.
I chose to make this playlist because these songs have inspired me through my musical journey and are a huge inspiration on the music I’m making today. I know they’re all over the place genre-wise but I feel they all come together to make the sound I’m trying to make!
