Level Up Your Sad Playlist Vibes: IOS15 Introduces Background Noise Feature
Apple has just provided the perfect feature for those days when you’re feeling glum but the weather is in stark contrast.
Australia’s sunny skies are definitely a blessing most days- but sometimes you just want a little gloomy weather to match your mood. Being based in ‘The Sunshine State’ means that I’ve found myself searching on Youtube “Acoustic [insert favourite band here] with Rain” perhaps a few too many times, while the sun is shining outside.
Apple’s new IOS15 update allows a range of background sounds to play directly from your phone, with or without additional media- but adding rain sounds to sad songs has immediately proved itself as top tier.
There are limitless possibilities really for this feature, but if you’re yet to try it out you’ll find a shortlist below of my personal favourite melancholic tracks to add rain to.
The Night We Met – Lord Huron
Cherry Wine – Hozier
Seigfried – Frank Ocean
Too Much – Tora
Cellophane – FKA Twigs
No. 1 Party Anthem – Arctic Monkeys
Circles – Mac Miller
Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby – Cigarettes After Sex
Walk It Off – Angus & Julia Stone
I Need A Forest Fire – James Blake & Bon Iver
To Build A Home – The Cinematic Orchestra & Patrick Watson
Fine Line – Harry Styles
Funeral – Phoebe Bridgers
Roslyn – Bon Iver

Enjoy your wallowing!
