Passion PitAs is customary in Britain, we’ll start by talking about the weather.

After several months of mediocre weather, the forthcoming ‘Spanish Plume’ has been met with as much hyperbole as you’d expect.

While the media decide which tropical destination to compare our temperatures to, we’ve put together a particularly summery edition of this week’s roundup.

Check out these 'scorching hot' tunes: 

Baro - Bears

Baro’s breezy hip-hop is the perfect accompaniment to a sunny day. Taken from his forthcoming EP, the 18-year-old Australian raps over a warm meandering synth melody and tropical percussion.

Passion Pit - Until We Can’t (Let’s Go)

Need to update your summer party playlist? Passion Pit have got you covered as they stake an early claim for the soundtrack to your summer. This high-octane track radiates with a restless energy, only to be unleashed in the track’s explosive chorus.

Oh Wonder - Midnight Moon

Another month, another Oh Wonder track. Keeping to their promise of releasing one track a month, the band unveiled ‘Midnight Moon,’ an up-tempo take on the bands traditional chilled-out sound.

Yates - Virtue

With his latest track, Australian singer-songwriter Yates creates an emphatic pop song with minimal production. The electronic-infused, acoustic track combines restrained melodies with soulful vocals to create a sound that is a simple joy.  

Balthazar – Wait Any Longer

With this effortless, laid-back track, Balthazar have the perfect tune for relaxing in the sun. Taken from their latest album, Thin Walls, a simplistic riff meanders throughout the song, combining with the lethargic hooks to make a perfect piece of slacker-pop.

Mai Kino - Burn

Meet Portugal’s star in the making. Mai Kino may only have one track to her name, but that’s all she needed to begin to turn heads. Her distinctive vocals are restrained yet infectious, and an apt accompaniment to the crisp, electronic production of Luke Smith.

MNDR - Lock & Load Feat Killer Mike

Dark yet seductive, psychedelic yet violent, MNDR’s track is the perfect soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V. The song is at the intersection of a number of genres, combining the sultry, hook heavy vocals of MNDR with brooding instrumentals, before Killer Mike’s ultraviolent vocals centre the track in Los Santos.

Eskimeaux - I admit I’m Scared.

Eskimeaux’s beautiful new track is emotional and delicate, yet triumphant. Buoyed by a gentle, acoustic guitar and frank lyricism, Gabrielle Smith's understated vocals grant the track an arresting simplicity.
