“Wake up and smell the coffee” “Happy Beats” “Lost in The Woods”
If these names are familiar to you, you probably are one of the few million followers of these official Spotify playlists. For listeners, these playlists represent a revolutionary tool to discover music and find songs corresponding to a certain mood (running, a dinner with friends, doing yoga, etc.). But for musicians, being in these playlists represents their big dream, a unique opportunity to get millions of new fans in no time. As you can imagine competition is tough ...
Twin Toes, a brand-new indie pop duo from Belgium, seems to have found a funny way to achieve this goal: “Lost in Playlists”, a song and a music video specially made to attract the attention of Spotify playlists curators.
« Every band wants their song in official playlists, we thought it might be fun to do the opposite, so we put official playlists in our song ».
So how to make it to an official Spotify playlist?
Via the Spotify for Artists platform, artists and labels can pitch their new release to Spotify editors who will then decide whether the song fits on their playlists. And so, no algorithm for these Editorial Playlists which are 100% created by hand, unlike Algorithmic Playlists created by computers (like your discovery weekly) and User Playlists created by normal people like you and me.
For these playlists, curators listen to thousands of songs every day to find the next gem that can complement their playlists and provide a better experience for the listeners. But with around 60,000 releases every day on Spotify, it goes without saying that your song better stands out.
Twin Toes, a brand-new indie pop duo might have found a magical idea to emerge from the mass and catch the attention of Spotify curators. True adventurers of pop, Antoine Geluck and Nicolas Mouquet had the brilliant idea to turn official playlists names into the lyrics of their new single "Lost in Playlists".
