Must Be Summer or Something

Written by on June 19, 2015

Hey, it’s Friday night! Which means I’m here again!

Summer’s just around the corner. Seriously, this Sunday marks the “official” first day of summer. Can you believe that? That being said, this mind-glowingly gorgeous weather combined combined with the resulting restlessness of house hunting and adventure having has left me with too much of a sunny attitude lately. I’m borderline spastic. So, here’s an hour of radical ladies influenced by that vintage surf rock reverb because, you know, it must be summer or something.

Since 2012, this song along has been my quintessential “summer” anthem. Alaina Moore’s voice is simply dripping with sunshine.

Born and bred in my once-upon-a-time city of San Francisco, this all-girl four piece only came across my radar a few days ago. The verdict? New obsession. It’s was really tough to pick just one song from their EP, Dreamers. If you do anything tonight, and I mean anything, please please please hit up their bandcamp and stream the EP. Absolutely stellar work, ladies.

Hashtag Smokey Bear hug.
