Friday Favorites (9/4)

As autumn approaches and the summer comes to an end, I am reflecting on a great summer despite all the strangeness because of COVID. One of my favorite go-to  genres to listen to during hot summer months is surf punk especially because it reminds me of my high school years. I’m sharing some of my favorite songs of this genre, hope you enjoy and find some unique new songs. 

Suburban Home – Descendents 

The Descendents are an LA punk group that make some really great music, and this song is one of my favorites by them.

Nine Is God – Wavves 

Although I didn’t love seeing this band live, I still really enjoy the band and think this is one of their best, especially because it’s featured in GTA V. 

Awkward – FIDLAR 

My top choice from this genre is FIDLAR, and this single keeps me reminded of why I loved this genre so much as a teenager. A really great punk-ish song that I can’t get enough of. 

Sick Shit – together PANGEA 

Catchy with a cool melody, this track is one of the best of together PANGEA. 

Babes – Hockey Dad 

Simple, nostalgic, punk. What more could you ask for? This one is perfect for a beach day or taking a drive on a summer day. 

As always, you can check out these songs and more on my WKNC Friday Favorites playlist here. Let me know what you think!
