Local dreamboat Jeremy Neale is helping us welcome summer with a ‘First Day of Summer Playlist’. Because, he loves us you guys. “Sure, everyday is your chance to start afresh but just like a good sitcom, it’s nice to break things down into seasons. I’ve got a feeling summer might be yours. With love from former late night TV psychic, Jeremy Neale.”
Check out his ultimate summer songs below – and listen in the Spotify player at the bottom. Welcome to summer!
Stevie – Toughen Your Skin
The top 3 secret government weapons of all-time are: 1. The Soviet Weather Machine. 2. Capitalism… and if they could find a way to harness it, number 3 would be lead singer Phoebe Imhoff’s voice. Outrageous melodies and killer production by Miro Mackie.
High-Tails – Family Holiday
It’s the classiest track I’ve heard in a long time. It’s a sophistipop revolution and you’ve got a front row seat. Pls don’t sell said ticket on eBay for an extreme profit – just enjoy where you are right now.
Sunscreen – Tide
Sunscreen will protect you from the sun, but nothing can protect you from just how great this track is. The riff, the dual vocal-play, the way it sounds simultaneously of this world and also not.
Bugs – Neighbourhood
Look, there’s a lot of #realtalk here in a very accessible package. The burbs are tough, I know. These are some of the most exciting melodies getting around Australia right now and the track is an instant party starter.
Self Talk – Bedside Dictionary
Look, I promised a summer playlist and this track sounds like summer to me.
No Local – What You Think Is Nothing
The duo of Snowy and Zac are responsible for a lot of hits. This track is no exception.
Totally Mild – Today Tonight
It’s a dramatic sonic journey. And I’ve been binge watching a bunch of TV at the moment so I know a good dramatic journey.
Greenwave Beth – Make Up
This track reminds me of all the whacky UK TV that was on the ABC when I was a kid. This description doesn’t really do the song justice. I’m sorry 🙁
Hatchie – Sure
It makes me nostalgic but it’s new. You do the math. Actually, it’s your day off. I’ll do the math. This track = a dream. Go back in time and put it on a 90s movie soundtrack already.
Zefereli – Round The Bend
The backstory is that making this record drove the songwriter mad but the pay off for the rest of us is a bunch of songs of incredible quality. Thank you for your sacrifice, Alistar.
