frumhere, kevatta – “warm feeling“
If frumhere & kevatta are not your aesthetic music playlist, it’s time to get them added. Spotify best describes frumhere’s sound as “a dreamlike form of lo-fi touched with the sweet haze of nostalgia.” Their music feels warm, fuzzy, and comforting. We’re a big fan of the collab album “Bedtime Stories,” but you really can’t go wrong with any of their releases.
Fiji Blue – “Lucky“
Everybody loves Fiji Blue. We first heard their single “Butterflies” back in 2020 and haven’t stopped listening to their music since. Self-described as “sad boy chill house,” we find their music to be a perfect complement to any aesthetic playlist. In additional to “Lucky,” we recommend checking out their song “The Way That I Am.”
ninjoi. – “Passin“
If you’re a fan of lofi, ninjoi. needs to be on your playlist. Joshua Batista (aka ninjoi.) produces amazing mellow jazz hip-hop with the perfect amount of melancholy. “Passin” is one of his most popular songs, but we are fans of everything he releases. ninjoi.’s music is absolutely perfect as background music for aesthetic videos, vlogs, and intros.
You can check out all of ninjoi.’s songs that are royalty free for videos on Thematic.
Madeline Lauer – “Silky“
Words like sensual, calming, and addicting perfectly describe the beautiful music from Madeline Lauer. Madeline’s voice drips with passion across all of her songs, including our fave “Silky.” Her songs have a great mellow R&B aesthetic. Creators find her music to be a great soundtrack to any easy-going morning routine video.

The talent behind Public Library Commute (Conrad) makes some of the best indie bedroom pop music on the scene. His aesthetic songs are dreamy jams great for any hang session. His song “Across The Room” has been spinning our playlist lately, but we’re in love with all his songs (if we’re being honest).
VALNTN – “Mona Lisa“
VALNTN (aka Valentin Fritz) is one-half of Fiji Blue and a long time favorite of ours. His aesthetic song “Mona Lisa” (a collab with Peter Fenn and Tray Haggerty) was a breakout hit on Thematic, soundtracking thousand of aesthetic videos across YouTube and Instagram. In addition to Fiji Blue and VALNTN, you can also check out Val’s vocal songs under his “love, val” project.
