What better way to reflect on past relationships, future loves, and everything in between than with some acoustic tracks?May 8, 2019
While Valentine’s Day has already come and gone, that doesn’t mean we can’t get in our feelings. What better way to reflect on past relationships, future loves, and everything in between than with some acoustic songs?
Check out the list below and let us know which one made you cry the hardest.
Fall Out Boy – “Grand Theft Autumn/Where Is Your Boy (acoustic)”
Contained on the EP My Heart Will Always Be The B-Side To My Tongue (RIP wordy Fall Out Boy titles), this acoustic version of their early single will always hit just as hard as the original.
With Confidence – “Paquerette (Without Me)”
Off of With Confidence’s latest album Love And Loathing, these Aussie pop-punkers prove they can write a knuckler of a love song—well, ex-love song. Frontman Jayden Seeley is ever the optimist, singing: “I hope you’re better off without me/In your bed and sleeping soundly/Dreaming in the arms of someone new”
State Champs – “If I’m Lucky”
State Champs had already released an EP and a full-length when they put out their acoustic EP The Acoustic Things. Little did they know that one of the new songs would go on to become one of their most beloved. Check out the adorable video if you have an extra few minutes.
The Story So Far – “Clairvoyant”
Known for their gritty edge of pop-punk, the Story So Far shocked the world when they released “Clairvoyant” on a Stick To Your Guns split EP. Frontman Parker Cannon croons “Don’t paint me black when I used to be golden,” until the final chords ring out.
PVRIS – “You And I (Stripped)”
This takes the term “acoustic” a little loosely, but electronic trio PVRIS never fit into molds anyway. “You And I” is one of their most popular singles, and this reimagining makes it even more powerful.
Waterparks – “Lucky People”
This chirpy, upbeat love song is full of optimism and rot-your-teeth couple adorableness. If you need something to listen to on a rainy day, turn to this Waterparks track—plus its beautiful, eerie video.
