There’s a way to discover new musical genres, or find the name of the genre you’ve been really into for the past half year! That’s this website:
Enter your favorite artist and you’ll find genres related to that artist. Click a genre and you’ll find a large word cloud of artists it applies to! Then, click on one of their names and a clip from their top song on Spotify will begin to play. Click again to be taken to that song on Spotify! For instance, I entered “Dead or Alive”, clicked on synth pop, and found a bunch of tangentially similar sounds. Fun!
Thanks to my friend Collin for showing me this website!
