Here are Our Favourite New Songs From This Summer
1

We've been, we've seen and we've conquered the summer festivals, and how truly amazing most of them were. Memories of performances by the likes of FKA twigs (those dance moves) and St Vincent (that psychotic stare) at Laneway Festival, and Kim Gordon's Body/Head at Sugar Mountain festival will keep us sated during the cooler months, when all live music moves to the Northern Hemisphere and we have to be content with the recorded kind – and living vicariously via Instagram.

Hopefully you kept yourself safe while you were enjoying all this good stuff during summer, because Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. It's also the most common cancer affecting young Australians – you guys! – to the point where two in three of your mates will be diagnosed with it at some point in their lives. Head to Pretty Shady's website for more information about staying safe during summer.

Because you're going to be spending the next little while safe indoors, listening to your iPod (are these still a thing?) or your record player, but probably Spotify, we've picked out a few of our favourite songs that were released this past summer, but are more than appropriate for winter, and created a little playlist for you to have all of the fun in between this season's music festivals and next's. Enjoy!
