To be clear, I am not musically literate. I love most music I hear. I listen, I dance in my underwear, and I feel things, but I suck at identifying genres or even identifying which instruments are playing beyond "drums," "voice," and "everything else."
With that said, there is definitely a certain dark, sexy, sultry, shivers-inducing quality I can detect in these two songs:
I am not sure what does it but I want to find more of it. In both, the drum beats and vocals (although not necessarily the lyrics) definitely contribute, even though the two singers' voices are very different. I am sure that the rest of the instruments do as well but I can't even identify what instruments are playing. I especially love the beginnings of both these songs.
If it helps, other songs that provide this quality, although to a lesser degree, and mixed in with other feels too, are these:
I would love to identify what these songs share so that I can find more like them! Thank you in advance!
