There have been so many amazing tracks this year that just scream “summer.” We personally stacked our summer playlists with songs evoking the feeling of cruising down a highway at sunset or chilling on the beach with your friends, enjoying the sun. If you’re looking for more songs like that, look no further than ‘Neon Summer’ by The Sometimes Island.
If you’re the type of person that tries to have a summer that feels like bright lights, sunshine, good times with friends, and all-around carefree vibes, ‘Neon Summer’ is 100% the song for you! It evokes the imagery of summer days and nights, waves crashing to shore, sunny weather, etc. while juxtaposing the sadness of a summer break up, “if you say that you love me one more time I’m hanging up the phone.” The Sometimes Island’s frontman Matt Blankenship Jr. described the ‘Neon Summer’ narrative best:
I hope this song inspires people to spontaneously do something summery. I hope they’re inspired to forget themselves for a second and do what makes them happy, and feel childlike.

The Sometimes Island – ‘Neon Summer’
Sure, maybe you didn’t expect to be dealing with all those emotions during the summer, but ‘Neon Summer’ is meant to help pick you up! It’s a track to put on and just vibe too, maybe at the beach, maybe poolside, or maybe just while soaking up the sun. It really feels like the embodiment of summer and is sure to lift you up no matter the mood.
This is our first foray into The Sometimes Island’s music and we’re happy to report that we are thoroughly impressed. What’s even more impressive is that they’re a DIY band, making and releasing their music label-free, which is super cool! Be sure to show them your love by streaming ‘Neon Summer.’
