It may be the end of July, but summer is still in full swing! One thing that always heightens our summer plans is the music we play! This summer we’ve been playing a lot of the six songs we’re going to talk about today, some new, some old. But each of them puts us in the best mood instantly.
Let’s get into it!
Ben Rector – ‘Brand New’
The first time we heard ‘Brand New,’ the song instantly gave us a serotonin boost. Ben Rector is a professional at making the happiest love songs you’ll find, and that is perfectly showcased here. All we want is to be on a road trip with someone we love, with ‘Brand New’ blaring out of the speakers.
Aly & Aj – ‘Symptom of Your Touch’
The entirety of, a touch of the beat gets you up on your feet gets you out and then into the sun, is pure sunshine. We haven’t heard a better album more fit for the summertime. Out of the entire record, ‘Symptom of Your Touch’ is the song we find ourselves coming back to daily!
Bleachers – ‘I Wanna Get Better’
When you think of one of the most uplifting songs you’ve ever heard what song do you think of? We think of ‘I Wanna Get Better,’ by Bleachers. We can’t help but have a permanent smile while this track is playing on our faces. It’s complete unadulterated joy in musical form.
Sigrid – ‘Sucker Punch’
Anyone who’s a fan of Sigrid knows what an upbeat discography she has. It’s so easy to let loose and dance to several of her tracks, but our personal favorite is ‘Sucker Punch.’ You just want to automatically get on your feet and dance around the room whenever you hear the track.
Lorde – ‘Solar Power’
We struggled between putting ‘Solar Power’ or ‘Green Light,’ both are such solid summer songs. But ultimately, we had to give some love to the newer of the two. ‘Solar Power’ is meant to be played on the beach without a care in the world with friends.
Karim Naas & Niall O’Connor – ‘Just Friends’
If ‘Just Friends’ isn’t on your list of ultimate summer songs, you’re doing it all wrong. ’Just Friends’ is the ultimate dance-pop track that you’ll want to play at every party you attend. Karim and Niall are a match made in musical heaven.
