ELLE’s summer playlist

In this cruel summer, let our playlist take you to a happy place

By Sonam Savlani  May 22nd, 2014

Normally, we just queue our workout playlist, no matter the time, no matter the place. But long holidays, winding drives and sunny blue skies deserve a soundtrack. And since this summer is proving to be a special kind of evil (think puddles of sweat, haze of perfumes, dizzying afternoons) we can’t be bothered to move a muscle. We’re happy to report our inner sloth wasn’t too taxed in bringing you this summer playlist. 

You’ll find tons of anthem potential in Calvin Harris’ ‘Summer’ and Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’. Instant mental vacations via ‘Waves’ and the Kygo remix of ‘No Diggity Vs Thrift Shop’. Also, the introduction of synth-pop folks – Clean Bandit and Kiesza – is not purely coincidental; we’re positively obsessing over them this minute. Grab your earphones and listen already.
