My End of Summer Playlist – Old and New Favorites

If there’s one thing I’m thankful for amidst all the chaos that is a global pandemic, climate crisis, civil rights movement and election year, it’s music. It never fails to bring me peace of mind and help me make sense of the world. I have loved exploring more genres of music over the summer and finding new artists to listen to.


If you’re anything like me, you’ll also enjoy listening to a range of Alternative-pop, R&B, and a few electronic beats. Hopefully this playlist can introduce you to something you haven’t heard before and serve as the soundtrack to these last few moments of summer:
