Welcome to this week's nzherald.co.nz playlist - a feature that allows readers to stream curated music from Herald staff.
As the weather warms up and the year comes to a close, there is one thing on everyone's mind... Summer! A time for road trips, festivals and days lazing on the beach, soaking in the rays. It's arguably the best time of year.
Have a listen to this mix, featuring Vampire Weekend, Atl-J, Grouplove and more, that will get you feeling the summer vibes. Hopefully the sky won't stay overcast for too long!
