Henry: It is legitimately almost summer. My friend ordered an iced coffee the other day; I have considered wearing shorts. That can only mean one thing: We write a lot about the summer. A brief history – of last year alone! – for the forgetful:
- Michael and I ran down ’25 Songs That Will Get You Pumped For Summer’ (still applicable, I would re-think The 1975 though).
- We did that again: Michael called how big avicii’s pseudo-Mumford club track would be, and also The Royal Concept’s ‘On Our Way’ (we also interviewed them here) and there was a Rihanna remix.
- We did a final list together (they were popular, okay? It’s kind of your fault more than anyone else’s) and this time song-writer to the stars, Bonnie McKee, followed us on Twitter. We were totally bugging.
- Michael listed the ’8 Best Indie Summer Songs’ that may have just been an excuse to post a photo of Hunter S. Thompson in short shorts. I’m joking – go read it – Youngblood Hawke retweeted us. It was a big deal.
Michael: That’s right, summer is here. I can do you one better, my friend genuinely makes ice coffees every morning now and I’ve been rocking the short shorts for the past week. Get pumped for some more summer-related output!
H: Yeah, this will complete most of your summer playlists. I’m now spending the entire summer waiting for someone to ask me to go see Godzilla with them. Pretty romantic.
