Summer is coming, which means road trips, relaxing, and lounging around. This Sounds Round Up will be a summer playlist to get your summer rolling!
So everyone knows that summer anthems are a must. They make your summer and are basically a soundtrack to your memories. A lot of the picks on this playlist are my personal favorites, tons which you will recognize as typical summer songs, but others are new. Here are my top picks.
Walk the Moon | “Shut Up and Dance”
I’m sincerely surprised I haven’t gotten tired of this song and it’s at the top of my list. It’s fun, silly, and makes me break out in awkward dancing. It’s a must.
Southlen | “Young Hearts,” “Fire,” & “Paint the Town”
It’s no secret how much I love Southlen so they needed an appearance on this playlist. “Young Hearts” is the type of song you blast while driving down PCH and “Fire” and “Paint the Town” are super energetic. I could add so many other Southlen songs, but these are my summer favorites.
Paper Route | “Empty House”
Considering they’re my favorite band, I needed to add them. However, most of their songs are pretty slow or really chill so “Empty House” was probably the best to include. It gives a dizzying feeling and it’s a gem hidden in an EP.
Two Door Cinema Club | “This is the Life” & “Changing of the Seasons”
When I think of summer songs, TDCC is a band that always pops up. “This is the Life” is the quintessential summer song and “Changing of the Seasons” has a fun vibe to it. There are so many other TDCC songs I would’ve added but I had to restrict myself.
Some I should mention is of course my favorite guilty pleasure, One Direction. Current favorite “My Type” by Saint Motel, which is also in the Paper Towns Soundtrack. Lana Del Rey, “Summertime Sadness” because of course, summer and “Tenderness” by General Public to bring in the 80’s vibe.
