There’s something different about listening to music during the summer – the hot wind, the beach days and summer nights, they all add up to something special. Whether it’s an outdoor barbeque, driving with the windows rolled down or sweating on the dancefloor, these five songs will inspire you to move.
Main Dish – Jarina de Marco
Jarina is our guilty pleasure, but, hey, summer is all about letting your guilty pleasures run loose (we’ll just tell ourselves that). This song came out in late April and has already proven to be a crowd favorite. With an intoxicating beat and an invitation to dance, Main Dish makes for a the perfect summer anthem.

Panda – Astro
An upbeat song, Panda is the first single off of Astro’s eponymous second album. The pop synth band from Chile is blowing up stateside. Fresh off an excellent performance at the Latin Alternative Music Conference, Astro is currently on their first US tour, so head over to their latest performance in a city near you.

La Que Me Gusta – Los Amigos Invisibles
This one is for lazy afternoons driving with your windows down thinking about absolutely nothing (except how good this song is, of course). With a cool demeanor, Los Amigos Invisibles deliver sweet and catchy lyrics that will have you singing along. Blending Disco, Acid Jazz and Funk, this song will have you coming back for seconds.
