The end of summer is always a nostalgic time, and this year is no exception. Here's a quick look at seven songs that made my summer great.

Kyoto by Phoebe Bridgers

Phoebe Bridgers has quickly become one of my favorite artists over the past few months. Her sophomore album, Punisher, came out this summer. ‘Kyoto’ is one of my favorites from the album, deviating from her typical slower, ballad-style song structure. If you’re looking for a song to scream in the shower, this is the one.

 

Window by Still Woozy

I’ve been a fan of Still Woozy for quite some time now and they really hit the nail on the head with this song. ‘Window’ is perfect for driving around and singing with friends: catchy, groovy, and will have you dancing from start to finish.

3 AM by HAIM

HAIM released their third studio album this summer and ‘3 AM’ is easily one of their best tracks. It feels very Michael Jackson-esque, with a funky tune and clever, thoughtful lyrics. I especially love hearing music from all-female groups and this track by HAIM is no exception.

Superfruit by Maude Latour

While I initially wasn’t super familiar with Maude Latour’s music, a lot of her songs, including ‘Superfruit,’ grew on me this summer. With a voice that sounds strikingly similar to Lorde, I wouldn’t be surprised if Latour became more popular in the next few years. 

Easy by Troye Sivan

Troye Sivan’s ‘Easy’ is one of those songs that just feels like summer. This song reminds me of warm nights outside with friends. Sivan’s vocals are flawless, the beat is punchy; what’s not to love?

betty by Taylor Swift

If any song is for the girls and the gays, THIS IS IT! The storytelling on ‘betty’ is some of Swift’s best work. The use of traditional folky sounds like harmonica and guitar fingerpicking makes this song so successful. On an album with so many great tracks, ‘betty’ is a standout for sure. 

  Hurt by Arlo Parks

I have always been impressed with Arlo Parks’s voice and this song only accentuates her raw talent. ‘Hurt’ is a powerful single that focuses on moving forward through hard times. I love the lyrics on this track and I can’t wait to hear more from this young singer.

Even though summer has come to an end, these songs are still definitely worth checking out. While you’re hunkering down to study remotely, these tracks can give you a taste of summer in the months to come.
