A solid melancholy aesthetic makes an upbeat playlist become relatable. The album is written in a female point of view, sung by the band members who are male, and this seems interesting. They’re all men and they’re writing about the struggles of a woman; their effort to put what women go through into words is admiring.

7. “Western StarsBruce Springsteen – June 21 – This mature singer feeds heartwarming, meaningful messages about life overall and relatable problems.
