We Found Your New Summer Song: ‘gulf blvd’ by Kesley Bou

We Found Your New Summer Song: ‘gulf blvd’ by Kesley Bou

If you’re currently building your summer playlist, you need to add this song to the list. Released on May 6, ‘gulf blvd’ by Kesley Bou is the perfect summer jam.

With descriptive lyrics, the breezy bop weaves a story of hometown beaches, rusted earrings, and driving with the windows down past your mom’s old house. It feels like a sunset drive through Kesley’s most precious memories, down ‘gulf blvd.’

It was inspired by my two best friends @samanthaerinmc and @brittany_theblonde and the beach we grew up on ☀️🌴🌊


Let’s go to the beach!

If current Aly & AJ met up with Lennon Stella and wrote a song it’d sound something like this one, made of saltwater and sandcastles. Kesley’s voice is magnetic and soothing, weaving a nostalgic tale that feels like an old swimsuit still soaked in sunscreen. ‘I think I’ll drive past your mom’s old house/where we swung under the oak tree/and sang along to James Dean,’ she sings over a dreamy beat.

This song is perfect for late-night drives, sitting by a fire, or soaking up the sun in a hammock. On Instagram, she said she hopes ‘it makes you feel like you’re on vacation.’ We can practically feel the wind blowing through our hair when we listen.
