Spring is my favorite season of them all. It is always a breath of fresh air every year when the first day of spring comes around. Spring also brings a plethora of new fun music from musical artists. These recent albums embody the feeling of a spring day.

Big Thief’s Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You

Adrienne Lenker and her band never fail to produce such perfect folk albums. I personally love to listen to folk music in the spring because it reminds me of doing “granola” activities like hiking and swimming in rivers. This new album has some beautiful harmonies and makes me feel so nostalgic, much like their previous album. This new album has a very hopeful sound throughout the songs and is perfect for listening while you relax by the river.

Wallows’ Tell Me That It’s Over

I have been waiting for a new Wallows album for three years and it finally arrived! Each song is really unique but still has an overarching 80s sounding influence to them. Songs like “I Don’t Want to Talk” and “Missing Out” are so fun if you are looking for music that will make you feel like it is almost summer.

Goth Babe’s Santa Catalina

This EP is my favorite from the entire list. I think each song perfectly embodies the feeling of coming out of winter to a warm sunny day and wanting to spend the entire day outside. “Driving South” sounds so much like a summer’s day, which I think is what we are all trying to emulate at this part of the semester. Goth Babe did such a stand-up job with this EP and I truly cannot wait for more music to come.

Aubrey Huntsman’s Kid Mercury

If you are craving a dreamy vibe this spring, Kid Mercury is for you. Aubrey Huntsman has such a fun sound to all of her music and this album does not disappoint. “Lavender and Licorice” is my favorite on the album. The song is so catchy and has really fun elements throughout. Huntsman masters the dream-pop genre that is so perfect for spring.

Benee’s Lychee

I found Benee through the song “Supalonely” featuring Gus Dapperton, which was popular on Tik Tok during the quarantine period. When I saw that this new album came out, I immediately had to listen. Benee captures the feeling of springtime so perfectly with songs such as “Beach Boy” and “Hurt You, Gus”. Her voice is so ethereal and her music is upbeat which I think is the ideal equation for a pretty spring day.

The arrival of spring is hopeful and these albums reflect the promise of springtime. Each of these records would fit perfectly into your new spring playlist.

With that being said, I had the awesome opportunity to cover Dodie’s Build A Problem Tour on March 10th, and it’s probably all I will be talking about for the […]
