A Playlist for August (With Sophie Roads)

Thursday, August 11, 2016

It is that time of the month again! (Not that kind, ladies. We celebrate real lives here, but that may be getting a little too real.) Sophie is back to share her August playlist with us (check out last month's here), and give us all a little musical boost as we head back full-force into school, work, etc. Enjoy!


Sophie: Hello! The playlist I've created for August is not cohesive in any sense of the word, but I've done my best to curate a grouping of songs that excite and evoke different emotions. Some songs are killer for car rides with friends (see: fun + upbeat), while others are better for rainy days (see: soft + cozy), or you may even need something encouraging before school starts (see: indie + uplifting).

I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do!

Soft + cozy:

Earned It // Bootstraps
Mountain Song // Little Chief
Lost in the Light // Bahamas
Still // The Japanese House
The King of Cape // Alfred Hall
Fake It // Bastille

Fun + upbeat:

Don’t Let Me Down - Illenium Remix // The Chainsmokers

Wanna Lose You // Borgeous
Can You Tell // Ra Ra Riot
Jackpot - The Him Remix // Jocelyn Alice
Not My Day // Keith James
Little Numbers // BOY
Closer // Chainsmokers + Halsey
Monster Lead Me Home // Sara Hartman
Side Note // Palastic + LissA
Outlaws // Alessia Cara
Thinking of You - Roulsen Radio Edit // HEART FX

Indie + uplifting:

Sirens // Woodlock

HAPPINESS // Needtobreathe
TESTIFY // Needtobreathe
Don’t You Cry For Me // Cobi
Home // Dan Croll
Runaway // Ziggy Alberts
Beat & Weathered/One Hundred Years // Typhoon
You Know It // Colony House 


You can follow the playlist on Spotify under the name Sophie Roads, or click the link HERE. Additionally, if you want to keep up with Soph's adventures, follow her on Instagram (@sophsyke). As I emphasized in last month's playlist post, everything is better with a good soundtrack in your ears. This month is a big season of change for me personally, so having music that is comforting to fun to soft, lifts my spirits. And, I hope it will lift yours a bit, too. 

Thanks again, Soph - you are KILLIN' these playlists for us over here on Habit & Heart.
