SUNNY SOUNDTRACK //

It's officially Spring and the sun has finally made a few appearances which can only mean one thing: festival season is on it's sweet, sweet way.

I've been feeling super seasonal after the sun graced us with it's presence this weekend so I've put together a few songs I'll be playing from now, and probably the entire way through Summer.


Mike Posner - I Took a Pill in Ibiza

This song has struck a chord with me because it's catchy AF with a great remix by SeeB but also, it's from the guy who had the hit 'Cooler Than Me' a few years back and he writes a pretty truthful story about his Ibiza pill-popping experience. Not normally my kind of thing but this is going to be, as the kids say, my jam.

The 1975 - The Sound

Now I've finally listened to their new album (I'm not even going to write the name because it's so ridiculoulsy long it resembles a Fall Out Boy track title) their single The Sound is still my favourite. Such a good Summer vibe.

Hozier - Jackie & Wilson

I've 100% overplayed this but as the single actually missed Summer last year, it'll be a great one this time around. This song is the epitome of a sunny day in the park with your bae.

Birdy - Keeping Your Head Up

In vast contrast to her haunting and beautiful cover of Skinny Love in 2011, this recent single is such a great Summer evening track to dance and sway to. Her voice is captivating and if this song is anything to go by, her new album (released this week) is going to be brilliant.

Izzy Bizu - White Tiger

There's a remixed version of this that I heard a few weeks back but this single version is much more my cup of tea. It's chilled, easy listening music and the kind of thing I'll be doing my makeup to on a Saturday night from now on.

Biffy Clyro - Winter of Wolves

Having listened to this well a few times since it being released yesterday, I'm already 100% certain I'm not going to be disappointed with their seventh album 'Ellipsis' - was there ever much doubt though, really? Can someone also please confirm their sampling of The Turtles in there somewhere as well please? Either that, or they're a fan of Shrek idk.

July needs to hurry up and get here so I can listen to their seventh album on repeat.



I've made my Summer playlist over on Spotify including some of these and many more tuuunes, go follow it and let me know what you're going to be playing next season.

I definitely don't do as many music related posts as I'd like to. I'm making a few changes to the amount and time I spend blogging so hopefully this will improve this year... so tell me if you want to see more!
