The BEST Cottagecore Music You Need to Listen to

Music is one of the most powerful art forms humans have created and it permeates every society and culture.

Songs can tell a story, trigger emotions and even change your mood in a certain situation.

It’s a form of self-expression and every artist brings their own unique twist into it.

What you feel when looking at a nostalgic picture or video can be elicited by music just as well and sometimes even better.

If you enjoy listening to music and are into the cottagecore aesthetic, you should definitely listen to the following suggestions and maybe you will find your next go-to artist there.
