New Music: your favorite plant

Hailing from the musical mecca that is Nashville, Tennessee comes 24-year old singer and songwriter your favorite plant (aka Rachel Swanson).

Thanks to a style of music-making that fuses pop with 00’s punk-rock, Swanson has managed to amass a following of 50k followers on TikTok alone – and when you play songs like ‘eternal sunshine’ it’s easy to understand why.

This is a sound that feels warm, inviting and relatable to experience. Songs feel current and fresh, while also maintaining a sense of nostalgia that is utterly charming to experience.

“I wrote ‘eternal sunshine’ (a nod to the film of the same name) about the feeling of going through a break up and wishing life wasn’t so serious. Wanting life to be more like a movie, and less like real life, a fantasy world where there are no rules or consequences and the love interests always end up together in the end. It’s reminiscent of songs on 2000s rom coms soundtracks and it’s the perfect song to sing to your ex outside the window with a boombox!”
