Music has always been immensely important to me. It’s my stress reliever, my way of connecting with others, and what I always need in the background when I do literally anything. And now that it’s quickly warming up here in Montreal, we need new tunes for our outdoor parties more than ever. As we’ve mentioned before, it’s Pride month and summer is pretty much here, so this calls for you to let loose and celebrate!
Here’s 8 tracks the With Love Darling team and I are currently obsessed with.
1. Christine and the Queens: Girlfriend (feat. Dâm-Funk)
A France-based singer, Christine and the Queens (aka Héloïse Letissier) has an amazing repertoire of both French and English music. Her new single “Girlfriend” is a great track to celebrate Pride month and to get your groove on.
2. Twin Shadow: Saturdays (feat. HAIM)
Twin Shadow’s song “Saturdays” is all about his love for those fun weekends we crave. The addition of the three sisters from HAIM adding their vocals make the song even better.
3. Troye Sivan: Bloom
Troye Sivan’s new album isn’t out until August, but we’re loving everything he’s been releasing so far. His song “Bloom” is all about giving into your desires and loving who you choose.
4. St. Vincent: Fast Slow Disco
St. Vincent’s (aka Annie Clark) remix will definitely be playing at all our dance parties for the entire summer.
5. Maggie Rogers: Falling Water
Up-and-comer Maggie Rogers is back with another stunning track, all about the ups and downs of a relationship.
6. Charli XCX: Porsche (feat. MØ)
If you’re not listening to Charli XCX and MØ, you really should get on that. Their song “Porsche” is about the daily grind we all go through to get by.
7. Kelela: LMK
We all get frustrated when people we like won’t tell us what they're really thinking. Kelela’s “LMK” means “Let Me Know”, encouraging all of us to be upfront about our feelings.
8. Lizzo: Good as Hell
Sometimes the best way to get over some bad news is to make yourself feel as beautiful as possible. Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” aims to do just that, and succeeds.
