The Sound of Sunshine

Now that summer has officially started, I'm constantly discovering and listening to exciting new music that's getting me in a happy, summery mood. Although here in England, the weather is disappointing 99.9% of the time, I thought I'd share a few of my favourite summer songs to get you in the mood, whether you're going on holiday somewhere tropical, or even just staying at home and making the most out of the decent, sunny weather. So sit back, relax and dream about the beach and the scorching sun!

Let me know in the comments if you liked any of the songs or artists featured in this post, and whether you want to see more music posts from us. For more music updates, you can follow my 8tracks account here, where you can see my favourite songs and playlists.
