It’s such a good feeling….
Sun shining, windows all the way down, warmth pressing against the skin. You can tell when spring hits, it’s almost as if the days have a special glimmer to them, sparkling as soon as the fresh air moves in. All winter long, the heat stays blasting, not even the slightest puff is allowed to seep outside of the car, then before you even know it, windows are open, hands waving in the wind as the car moves along, favorite tunes being belted at the top of your lungs. It’s a joyride, and there’s no slowing down.
What songs do you drive to with the windows down? If you need some help deciding, we reached out to a couple of our FP music committee members to lend a hand. They’ve created a perfect “windows down” playlist for the new season. If you need some new music in your life, or need a few tracks to get your own playlist started, take a look below at what our girls are listening to!
1. “How Did I Get Here” ODESZA
2. “Sun Models (feat. Madelyn Grant)” ODESZA
ODESZA produces the ultimate summer songs, perfect for those windows-down, breeze-in-your-hair drives. “How Did I Get Here” is one song that is perfect for any roadtrip. It is dreamy, refreshing and puts you in a good mood!
1. “Shoegaze” Alabama Shakes
2. “Make Our Own Way” Little Brutes
3. “The Man Who Lives Forever” Lord Huron
Lord Huron’s “The Man Who Lives Forever” makes me think of driving with the windows down after a day at the beach at sunset, simply because his voice echos like you’re driving through a humid, hazy summer day back to your place in a dream-like state. We all want to live forever through the summertime!
1. “Ferus Gallery” Allah-Las
2. “Stop Trippin'” GRiZ
3. “Emmylou” First Aid Kit
Stop Trippin’ always knows how to get me grooving! Combining some funk and just enough electronic bass makes for a rockin’ track! The lyric content is empowering and all around just a feel-good song! It always makes me want to grab my girlfriends, throw on my fave sunnies, roll the windows down on a road trip to either a concert or the beach for a girls day!
1. “Dye” Tycho
2. “Sweet Illusions” Ryan Adams
3. “Stay Lost” White Violet
Some songs take you back to summertime when you hear them, and “Stay Lost” by Athens, GA based band, White Violet, definitely does just that. With its breezy, beachy vibe, it makes me picture a summer afternoon with my friends heading out for an adventure
1. “Honey in the Sun” Camera Obscura Honey in the Sun
2. “We Come from the Same Place” Allo Darlin’
3. “Sedona” Houndmouth
There’s nothing like a perfect summer day, listening to your favorite tunes. I love upbeat songs that I can sing my heart out to while driving around. “Sedona” by Houndmouth is totally going to be on repeat for me this summer!
Get the look: Fiona’s Maxi Dress
1. “Red Eyes” The War on Drugs
2. “Realiti” Grimes
“Red Eyes” by The War on Drugs is such a feel good tune! Something about the melodic vibe of the song and Adam Granducie’s voice makes me instantly daydream to being outside, in the warm summer breeze, dancing in my happy place.
