My Alternative Summer Playlist

Whilst on my quest to make the UK's current soaring temperatures more bearable for myself, I had the realisation that great songs with summery vibes are able to get me into the summer mood! So I decided to put together a few of those songs to create a summer playlist for myself and others to enjoy. All these songs make me want to go out and embrace the warm summer days and nights, whilst making the most out of my summer holiday.

Here's what my summer sounds like:

Riptide by Vance Joy

Work on Me by Kings of Leon

Over the Hills and Far Away by Led Zeppelin 

All The King's Men by Wild Beasts

From Eden by Hozier

First Time by Vance Joy

Helena Beat by Foster the People

Yellow Sun by The Raconteurs

Florida Kilos by Lana Del Rey

Camaro by Kings of Leon

Click here if you'd like to have a listen to the playlist yourself. Enjoy!

I'd also love to hear what songs are on the soundtrack of your summer.

  1. Lana Del Rey's voice is amazing and so is her style!

    Smile! You are beautiful! :)


  2. Death Cab for Cutie are always in my summer playlists and have been for years :)

  3. Love love love! It's the middle of winter here in Australia but I do love summer songs & listen to them even when the weather is a little colder (although I do live on the Gold Coast which doesn't get anywhere near as cold as other places!) :)
