[Indie/Alt Rock Overload] Feel Good Tunes for Your Feel Good Summer

Image

I think we’ve had enough of the electronic music for a little bit…so I figured it’s time to change it up a little. In the summer there is a time to rage, and a time to chill. We all know this.

Sometimes you just need that slower beat song that just makes you ‘feel good’. It’s that moment when a song comes on and you instantly become happy. For me it’s one of the most powerful things music can do for you. Music has the ability to completely change one’s mood. Especially when it is associated with an experience or image in your mind.

Some of you might have heard some of these bands and some you may have not. I try and keep up with as many new bands as I can, but it’s much harder than keeping up with the EDM scene, believe me.

So…sit back…chill…and relax to your summer:

Symptoms – Atlas Genius

Hollywood (feat. Penguin Prison) – RAC

This Head I Hold – Electric Guest

MY FAVORITE RIGHT NOW:
Venice – Lighthouse & The Whaler

Harvest Moon – Poolside (Neil Young cover aka: my dad would love this)

Nunca – Trails and Ways (another favorite!!!)

Take A Walk – Passion Pit (a classic)

Lakehouse – Of Monsters and Men (fitting for my summer)

Bushwick Blues – Delta Spirit

It’s Time – Imagine Dragons (wins the award for ‘Best Feel Good’)

Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood

Lovers Carvings (Bruno Be & Eddie M Remix) – Bibio

Raconte-Moi Une Histoire – M83 (this could easily be the weirdest one, but I still like it)

And always saving the best for last:

Trembling Hands – The Temper Trap

Hope you enjoyed the songs!!

I mean come on look at that light show and fireworks, and parachuters with sparklers reallllyy. Check out this video…OFF THE CHAIN (Make sure you go to 4:15):

3. Swedish House Mafia has been playing a new mix of Coldplay‘s “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” at their shows. I am in love with this mix!!!
