June brought new beginnings and a official start to summer (June 21st). Now as June ended it brought some music to enjoy in this warm weather. Here’s my track by track breakdown of my June Playlist! Listen to the full playlist here x.
Can’t Feel My Face // The Weeknd
After casually hearing this song on the radio, I can’t stop signing it. “Can’t Feel My Face” is surprisingly smooth which makes it infectious. The Weeknd delivers an up beat tune that will make your summer.
Where Are Ü Now // Skrillex & Diplo Feat. Justin Bieber
A very unique and strange collaboration, but it works. Electronic music is on the rise. The synths are precise which brings the song to life. It’s hard to stay still to this song. Plus Bieber’s voice suits the contrasting sweet dark tone.
Lean On // Major Lazer x DJ Snake Feat. MØ
Yet another electronic song is on the summer charts. The mysterious tune shines through, giving singer songwriter MØ international recognition. “Lean On” reminds us that we all need that one important person in life.
Hallelujah // Panic! At The Disco
American rock band P!ATD released such a authentic tune. “Hallelujah” is passionate with a hint of catchy. Who wouldn’t want to sing these lyrics at the top of their lungs. Summer is staring, “the time for being sad is over”.
This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like A Mother…… // Maroon 5
The title says it all. Maroon 5 prove they still got it. This song grips the listener on a ride. There’s no reason people shouldn’t be dancing or screaming the lyrics to this.
Good For You // Selena Gomez Feat. A$AP Rocky
Selena Gomez has officially stripped away from her Disney image. No more kid pop. “Good For You” shows Gomez’s serious side. It’s completely different and A$AP Rocky fits perfectly.
Stronger // Clean Bandit
UK electronic band Clean Bandit can not get any better. Incorporating the violin with pop beats is something special. “Stronger” shows a bit of soul without having over powered electronic influences.
The Sea // Swim Deep
Five piece Indie pop band, Swim Deep is current and youthful. The soft little song “The Sea” gives a relaxed beachy mood. Imagine laying on the sand with a bit of gloom as the spunky tune plays in the background. These guys are about to take their first hit at America by supporting The 1975 on their US fall tour.
What’s Real // WATERS
Energetic five piece rock band, WATERS is one of the most distinct bands. “What’s Real” brings indie rock in another form. This song could either be blasting in your car on the 405 or it could be playing in a cute coffee shop down Sunset.
