song of summer

It's officially SUMMER! I trust you're already knee-deep in cucumber margaritas, bikinis and all the best things the season brings. But along with a signature drink and appropriate poolside wear, your summer needs a soundtrack. I caught Good Morning America while working from home on Friday morning and Robin Roberts & co. were trying to declare Adam Lambert's "Ghost Town" the "song of summer." No offense to the American Idol alum, but it wasn't really doing it for me.

Ryn Weaver's "OctaHate," however—hell yes. I have to give my younger sister credit for introducing me to this one. The song went viral last June after the California-born singer posted it to her Soundcloud account, and she released the full album just last week. "OctaHate" is so infectious. It's the kind of song that makes my shoulders and head roll and bounce crazily and unbidden—you can't help but dance. 

I'm excited to see her at Triple Rock next month. If you're in Minneapolis, looks like there's still tickets! And in case you're behind in the cocktail and swimsuit categories, here's a friendly kick in the pants (official Swimsuit Edit coming soon)! Happy summerrrrrrrr!
