My (Indie) Summer Playlist

Seasonal playlists are my jam (not pun intended). Fall calls for mellow mixes but summer requires it’s own genre of upbeat, fast paced tunes, or adventure soundtracks, if you will. Here is my curated summer playlist of (somewhat) lesser known songs for any situation you may find yourself in this season:


Song: Climb Out Your Window

Artist: Walk off the Earth

Perfect for: Sneaking out of the house and having a Paper Towns style midnight adventure

Song: Katie Queen of Tennessee

Artist: The Apache Relay

Perfect for: Falling in love with a summer crush (or office crush, as this Buzzfeed video portrays)

Song: Little Numbers

Artist: BOY

Perfect for: Waiting for said summer crush to call you (or running around the city with your best friend to take you mind off of it)


Song: Tikka

Artist: Scott Helman

Perfect for: Imagining Scott Helman wrote this song for you (also this video shows the lyrics in emojis so that’s a fun twist)


Song: Big Parade

Artist: The Lumineers

Perfect for: Analyzing the complex and ever changing political, social,  and economic climate of the United States. Or you know, watching a parade.


Song: Lost in My Mind

Artist: The Head and the Heart

Perfect for: Laying in the sun daydreaming


Song: Best Day of Your Life

Artist: Katie Herzig

Perfect for: Not letting over-planning and perfectionism get in the way of the freedom summer  can bring


Song: Mountain Sound

Artist: Of Monsters and Men

Perfect for: Having a summer adventure (specifically: running through the woods, twirling around in the sun, dancing in a field)


Song: Take What You Can Carry

Artist: The Maine

Perfect for: Getting into trouble


Song: Trouble

Artist: Imagine Dragons

Perfect for: Getting out of trouble


All kidding aside, all of these songs have been on repeat for me in the last couple of months. Give them a listen, you’ll be glad you did!

  1. I listened to these songs on my commute today! I really enjoyed them all. If I had to pick, “Little Numbers” by Boy, might be my favourite? Thanks for bringing new artists into my radar. I had only really heard of “Best Day Of Your Livfe” which I also love 🙂 Your captions (and humour) are on point/ perfect!
