Despite the shitty weather, it is almost officially summer so I thought I would share some songs that I will probably be listening to the entire season. I am going to add them to my Summer 2016 playlist on Spotify so if you have any recommendations – I’m all ears!
These are my picks, enjoy! :
OneRepublic | Wherever I Go
This song came out last month and I have been loving it ever since I first listened to it. I immediately recognized there was something different about this track, which is actually just what I expected from OneRepublic. The band has always been evolving and keeping up with the change of the music industry without getting caught in the whirlwind. I think that there are a lot of bands who try to change their sound so that it’s more appreciated by the masses but they usually end up struggling with their identity as a band. At least that’s the feeling I get with some artists, which is why I’m happy that OneRepublic has found a way to adapt changes without loosing what they stand for.
Fifth Harmony | All In My Head (Flex) ft. Fetty Wap
Remember all the upcoming music releases that I was looking forward to? Well, Fifth Harmony have put out their second album 7/27 and of course it’s no short of amazing. One of my favorite songs is called All In My Head (Flex), which is probably the most summer-y song in my little selection. It makes me want to call all my girlfriends, put on a nice dress and basically part all night. Go ahead, listen to the song if you don’t believe me and tell me if I’m wrong (I’m not, btw).
The Icarus Account | Cherry Street
If there’s one band that knows how to write cute love songs, it’s The Icarus Account. The band is finally back with new music (Over The Moon comes out June 21st btw) and it sounds better than ever. There is something about Ty and Trey (yes, they are brothers) that makes them stand out amongst numerous Singer/Songwriter artists. This band’s music warms my heart every time I listen to it and I’m really happy they are back with a new album. I LOVE their EP Girls Like You and I’m sure that their new record won’t be any less perfect.
