Wedding real talk: if you’re getting married or participating in a civil union this summer, you have enough stress without having to worry about how music might help or hinder your special day.
Top 40 and classic pop are fine options but certain songs are so ubiquitous that eventually it’s hard to distinguish one first dance from another. There are so many brilliant, fun, beautiful, and unusual love songs in the world that are miles away from the mainstream.
Building on the success of our original indie wedding playlist, CBC Music wants to help make your marriage/civil union/commitment ceremony as unique as the love you’re celebrating. Below, you’ll find 25 new songs from a range of indie and emerging artists and bands from all over the world including Zaki Ibrahim, William Prince, Shannon & the Clams, Dream Wife, Kadhja Bonet, Donovan Woods and more.
