It’s that time again! Over the past month it’s been hot as hell in my neck of the woods, so at one point I definitely said that this month’s playlist would consist of exactly one song because the heat got to me way too much. But, I have recovered and I have 11 tracks that you might have missed this month to chill out or hype up to, or really just be the soundtrack to whatever you want.
Junoflo – ‘Wide Awake’
Junoflo’s signature combination of chill and intense is really shown off in this track, his first since leaving Feel Ghood Music.
Bronze (ft. Sumin) – ‘Door’
…and the winner for best road trip track of the summer goes to this song for being a hot beach summer jam.
Jooyoung (ft. pH-1) ‘Samcheong View’
Okay so this track was actually released on the last day of June, but I couldn’t leave it off this list. It’s soft and stripped back and sounds like napping on a Sunday afternoon feels.
Verycoybunny – ‘Joking’
This track is a good combination of breezy vocals and a sweet 90’s electronic percussion layer.
Lofibaby – ‘SOS’
The singer is literally ON a beach so I don’t think I need to make a case for this one being a good summer track. This song definitely turned me into a fan extremely quickly.
Cherry Coke – ‘Salt’
Dreamy and soft and truly lovely.
G.reedy – ‘Foolish’
A slightly melancholy Lee Hi-type sound, but in the best way – although this song is way too short, and it does feel a bit like it ends just as it really gets going.
HYUK – ‘Way To You’
Hyuk, VIXX’s giant hulk of a maknae, continues to release solo tracks, and it’s nice that he finally gets to show off his vocals properly.
GroovyRoom ft. Paul Blanco & UNEDUCATED KID – ‘Face Down’
GroovyRoom never ever lets me down when it comes to beats – although the flow in this song from the rappers is patchy in some places, it’s still a solid groove.
Punchnello ft. Sam Kim – ‘23’
Punchnello is yet to release anything that I love as much as anything off his ‘LIME’ EP, but this song is still very pretty and his softly-scratchy voice is as charming as ever.
CIX – ‘Imagine’
CIX debuted recently with their super-smooth track Movie Star, but this is the song off the mini-album that I’ve been enjoying the most, and I’m of the opinion that there are always b-sides that need more love.
That’s it for tracks you might have missed last month – happy streaming!
