Sounds of Summer

I know it's August, but don't give up on summer yet. The heat of the sun, the grit of sand squishing beneath your toes, the warm water washing over you as you dunk into the pool.... savor every last minute of it.

Still, as the lazy days basking in sunshine and playing outside come to an end, I've found my summer soundtrack to be losing it's magic. The playlists of june & july have been worn so far down I'd rather sit in silence while I'm soaking up the sun on the beach and elbow deep in strawberry margs.


But that just won't do. A marg like this deserves to be sipped in the presence of a great song.

Enter: trusty summer soundtrack of recommendations from friends & a deep dive into "related tracks" on Spotify. I've curated a little list of some current favorites that are perfect to blast in the car or sing along to while splashing in the pool.

Here's the playlist, jam on:

If you wear this out and need some other recs, here are some of my favorite albums of the moment:

1. Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer

High energy, fresh + unique sounds, impressive vocals & a great aesthetic.

2. High As Hope by Florence & the Machines

Effortless, transcendent, emotional & unlike anybody else.

3. Finding it Hard to Smile by lovelytheband

Laid back, catchy & with a song for every summer vibe.

4. Shawn Mendes by Shawn Mendes

Crooning vocals, emotional highs and lows & honestly it's just a fun listen.

5. Sleep Well Beast by The National

A weird & wonderful album - it's The National, what more do you need?
