“There’s something in the water,” sings Anna Of The North in her new synthy, breezy, ’80s throwback track “Someone.” Well, we’ve got a spoiler alert on this long holiday weekend: That something is you.
So as you swim, frolic, play, and do all sorts of other fun things on the most chill holiday of the summer, this new extended V:Music has casual vibes on the mind and a relaxed tone for your outdoors revelry. Whether it’s spent at the beach, the pond, the lake, or that landlocked BBQ out on a rooftop or patio somewhere, we’re providing some early alt-pop fireworks via fresh-cut selections from the aforementioned Anna Of The North as well as Aaricia, Julietta, San Holo, BAIO, Iolite, Tourist, Liam Gallagher, Glass Animals, Tei Shi, Kasbo, Pierce Fulton, Billie Eilish, Oshi, ayokay, R3HAB, Foster The People, King Henry, Graceful Closure, our 2014 CMJ party alum Smoke Season, and more.
It’s 30 sunny songs deep and clocks in at just under two vibrant, sunshine-filled hours, easily replayable and devoid of all those cliched July 4 mixes that permeate the streaming shout-abouts.
This is V:Music. Made for you.
