Regardless of how you’re spending the long, hot days of summer, your main goal should be to relax and beat the heat. To do so, you’ll need the essentials: some ice cream, air conditioning, and some summer tunes.
Our playlist starts with the new, aptly-named single “Summertime Gladness” from Dance Gavin Dance. We keep up the pace with progressive tracks from Polyphia and Eternity Forever, songs that will leave guitar riffs stuck in your head for days. Looking for some summery tracks that are a little more chill? We’ve got those too. Check out Peach Pit’s “Sweet FA,” and Turnover’s “Super Natural,” tracks perfect for listening to when riding a bike down the boardwalk or sitting outside at sundown.
