10 Summer Songs To Add To Your Playlist

With July’s summer temperatures rising, it only makes sense to recharge with some equally hot hits. Whether you’re on a beach getaway or stuck at your desk (like the rest of us), our summer playlist is just what you need to put a little swing back in your step.

1. The Journey Starts Tonight by Rumahsakit


Rumahsakit is an Indonesian band and that’s known for producing music that features both English and Bahasa. Their single “The Journey Starts Tonight” delivers this signature style and definitely doesn’t disappoint with its retro indie-pop vibe. This song is the perfect feel-good tune to sway your head to while basking in the sun.

2. Through And Through by Khai Dreams


Not a lot of people know about the ambient music genre, but it’s time to hop on the bandwagon! The repetitive yet gentle instrumentals are meant to soothe and bring out that quintessential carefree summer vibe no matter where you are.

3. Sunset Lover by Petit Biscuit   


This Tropical House hit was first released on Soundcloud and has amassed about 180 million streams since! The perfect addition to any summer party playlist, this tune will have you moving to the beat before you even realise it.

4. No Going Back by Yuno


Yuno’s back with another electronic hit that’s undeniably retro, yet irresistibly fun and futuristic. The upbeat track reminds us of our youth, and that though we might not know where we’re headed, you have to look forward, cause there’s no looking back.

5. Selene by Imagine Dragons


Selene might just be the perfect road trip song to rock out to. The Indie tune peppered with electronic keyboard riffs is a much-needed addition to any carpool karaoke sessions you have planned this summer!

6. Feel It Still by Portugal The Man


Even if you don’t recognise this song’s title, you can bet you’ve heard it at least once this season. The Grammy-winning hit dropped in 2017, and we still can’t get enough of this infectious tune that’s got us tapping our toes.

7. Tongue Tied by Grouplove


Grouplove was made for the summer, and it only takes an instant to know that. Perfect for scream-singing with your friends on a warm summer night, it’s all about celebrating moments with the people you love, and making unforgettable memories.

8. Waterfall by Petit Biscuit & Panama   


French producer Petit Biscuit joins forces with Panama to bring us a refreshing new sound for the summer. Just like cliff diving into clear blue waters, this song starts off calm but builds up to give us all that rush of adrenaline we seek.  

9. Swimming In The Moonlight by Bad Suns


Swimming In The Moonlight brings to mind summer love and new romances. Chocked full of catchy lines like “here outside, it’s just you and I, I couldn’t love you more if I tried” there’s no way this number won’t leave you smiling as you sing along.

10. Undercover Martyn by Two Door Cinema Club


Undercover Martyn is an indie classic, and though it may have dropped in 2010, it’s a tune that’s still fresh today. With its catchy beat and feel-good vibe, it’s a timeless song to celebrate the summer.

Introducing: Fender PureSonic Bluetooth Headphones

While you’re grooving to our summer playlist, why not try out the Fender PureSonic Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones?  Many already know of Fender and their high-quality musical instruments and audio products; so rest assured this pair of Bluetooth enabled in-ears are no exception. Compatible for mobile phones without built-in headphone jacks, it’s a handy and lightweight addition to anyone’s travel arsenal weighing only 15 grams.

I’ve been using in-ears for the past 5 years now, and I’m sure all audiophiles can agree that there’s no better way to zone out and tune in to our favourite hits. The earbuds come with soft interchangeable tips for that perfect fit, giving you extra comfort for all your long journeys ahead. While its sound-cancelling properties are undoubtedly amazing, what I really love is how it amplifies the bass and leaves me feeling like I’ve got my own set of portable subwoofers!
