The leaves are falling, the air is getting crisper, the days are becoming shorter and much, much, colder–fall is officially upon us. If you're anything like me, music is an important part of setting the mood for a gorgeous time of the year like autumn. Acoustic ballads and lush vocals can make any part of the day feel warm and cozy. Thankfully for us, Spotify puts together glorious playlists for listeners, ready to pick and choose from. Here are six Spotify playlists with all of the autumn vibes you need this season.

1.) Autumn Acoustic
This playlist had to be first on the list, of course–Autumn Acoustic is the perfect blend of indie string songs and beats that make you want to curl up with a fuzzy blanket, a good book, and a cup of something warm and delicious. It's the season of treating yourself.
2.) Femme Fatale
This playlist SCREAMS girl power, and we're all for it. The French phrase, originally from the 18th century, translates to mean a mysterious, seductive woman, and it was used to describe women who began to speak up in the public sphere and make themselves known. These songs are alluring, and more than anything, powerful.
3.) Dark & Stormy
Dark & Stormy is the ideal collection of songs for you to blast at full volume during the next big thunderstorm that passes by. The ambient tracks mixed with booming thunder and falling rain–it's the recipe for coziness you've been craving. (P.S., we have brand-new items from our Comfy Club collection that would be perfect to snuggle up in. Shop them here.)
You know what to do with this one–grab your favorite table at the nearest local café, pop some headphones in, and buckle down. Whenever I have a planner full of tasks to do, I make sure to have a relaxing, acoustic background to keep me company. If at some point, music with words becomes too distracting, switch to classical music to really stimulate your brain.
Sometimes a bad day calls for brooding, heartbreaking melodies, and this playlist has got the hookup. It's folk meets indie acoustic meets vocals that take your breath away. (Song recommendation from this playlist: Anchor by Novo Amor. It'll give you chills.)
6.) Haunting Vocals
This is my personal favorite, a powerhouse playlist that's both beautiful and chilling. These songs are hard to ignore, making you feel like a thriller film and you're not sure what's going to come around the corner next. Switch your fairy lights on, open the window to let a cool breeze in, and let the bewitching vocals wash over you.
