Are there any artists that you enjoy listening to who sound unique within their genre(s), and have a sound that is incomparable to that of any other artists that you’ve listened to? Feel free to share!

 

Cheers!

Would you like artists that aren't very popular or any artist/band that has a special sound?

Hi @10tullj, thanks for your post!

 

This topic is meant to be about any artists/bands that have a “special sound,” in that no other artist that you’ve listened to sounds like them; so the artists/bands to share here could be popular or unpopular, as long as they fit this criterion. My apologies if my post was unclear, and I hope this clarifies things a bit!

 

One artist that comes to mind from my own listening habits is Ozric Tentacles, who incorporate a noticeable electronic influence in their blend of psychedelic-, space-, and progressive rock:

While their music is representative of these aforementioned genres, to me their sound is incomparable to that of other bands that I’ve listened to. The closest artist in terms of sound would probably be Hidria Spacefolk, but even in this case, the two bands’ sounds are easily distinguishable.

 

Cheers!

It's ok! I wasn't sure if you were trying to promote new artists.

 

In my opinion, I believe that Black Flag and Motörhead have their own unique sound! I love them! I also love My Chemical Romance because of their sound. If I can remember correctly, I believe that they were inspired by both Black Flag and Motörhead! I believe that the members of My Chemical Romance listened to both of those bands. Particularly, I think that MCR's first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love, has it's very own sound.

I also think that Queen is a good group to mention. It's clear that they have a legacy and have made many great hits. Queen is very popular, but I still believe that their sound is one of a kind, and there's nothing like it!

Rezzett is so unique in the electronic space that it's hard to know where to place the sounds

Kero Kero Bonito is a unique blend of smooth Japan Pop and early 2000s' pop

Infinite Bisous feels like blues and dream pop but with sad boy vocals. Very strange but in a really good and pure way.
