In these sweaty-sunburnt-sandy asphalt days, we deserve all the simple pleasures: iced coffee, cool breezes, and music that elevates us from the heat and also revels in it. Your songs for the summer need to give you that summer FEELING. Make you want to dig a little deeper, push through the swelter, and totally celebrate yourself.
Whether we’re sweating out the office or soaking up the beach, we need sweet summer sounds, a little sexy, a little nostalgic, and full of soul and hope. We want to know we’re in the thick of summer, and if we bop hard enough we might just be able to stretch it out a little longer.
