Music is arguably one of the most important parts of your road trip. After snacks and a top class navigator, of course. Make sure you’ve got that playlist down so not all your time is spent playing DJ, and you can actually enjoy the scenery.
Kick back and embrace the summer vibes from our 5Why Mixtape that will guarantee top of the lung singing and in-car dance moves. Throw these tunes onto your already curated playlist or just crack on ours which is updated every 2 weeks with the best that Aus has to offer.
#1 Tints (feat Kendrick Lamar) // Anderson .Paak
After teasing us at the end of last month with a cryptic instagram post, Tints has finally been released. And these two make a solid team. A funky ass tune that’s getting us excited for summer with (tinted) windows down and music loud.
#2 Butta Spark // Bootleg Rascal
Two years after their last album, Bootleg Rascal have released another huge one in their true hip-hop infused flavour. This particular track provides reggae vibes made for the good weather. Strong beats and a slick guitar riff is what we like.
#3 Lightenup // Parcels
A classic groovin’ track with Daft Punk influence (whom the band have previously collaborated with) that’s fulfils ultimate 80’s guilty pleasure. This Berlin based Aussie band is going places, and so are you.
#4 Bee-Sting // The Wombats
What’s a road trip without The Wombats? These guys provide the goods yet again with a quintessential, catchy and infectious new track off the back of their latest album. You can’t go wrong.
#5 I’m Good // Wafia
The ever growing Brisbane artist brings yet another anthem for summer. This upbeat track features a strong bassline that’s perfect to turn up loud on the open road with your mates. Watch out for her to become even bigger over the next couple of years. A festival favourite on the horizon.
