Art by Stephany Torres for Remezcla

Fourth of July may bring to mind those all-American traditions of red, white, and blue backyard barbecues with charred hamburgers and too-sugary lemonade. But the national holiday isn’t only a celebration of America’s independence; it also marks the peak of summer. For that reason, we’ve hand-picked a spectrum of juicy sweet tunes to play while you soak up the sun. From Ela Minus’ synth pop paradise in “Small Moves” to Empress Of’s echoing vocals in Blood Orange’s newly released track “Best to You,” this playlist will help you reach all your summer aesthetic goals #tropicalytranquilo.

So set out your picnic blanket and start enjoying that paleta, because it’s summer, bbs.
