Henry: Like Grouplove’s second album, summer promised so much: Late nights, fisherman knits and tan. But I’m pretty sure I’m dying right now. I had two late, late (but awesome, awesome) nights on Thursday and Friday and I think I’m being punished by the universe or something because all I’ve eaten since Saturday is fruit and juice and it’s not working. I literally just fell asleep for four hours in the middle of the day. How’s your current state, Mikey?
Michael: I’ve had a truly wild summer. Made it out of the house once in the last week to pick up my brother’s dry cleaning. That’s it. That’s literally what how the sunniest week of this summer so far went for me. Tonsillitis is a bummer. I made it to my summer ball though, alcohol was not the best medicine.
H: Point being: We’re both pretty wild. And sometimes you just have to down a beetroot smoothie (#rebooturself), blast a good song (#tune) and get a grip (#GAG). These are the songs that’ll get that done. They’re like Starbucks but come without the crippling self-loathing of buying cardboard-coffee just because some kid from L.A bought it in a film.
Other stuff: Lots of songs from our ‘30 Songs of the Summer‘ may be applicable here but they were also quite a lot about love and that confuses me so let’s try and not think about it as much this post. Also see Allie X’s ‘Prime’ from our ‘Summer Party Songs‘ which literally kickstarts my every day. It’s so good and gets cleverer every time I listen to it.
M: I’m so proud that I can take responsibility for discovering the next big pop star/next pop star that Henry loves. Allie X will dominate airwaves for years to come, trust us on this.
