This band is giving us retro '70s vibes and groovy music that is perfect for summer (plus their outfits are always 10/10). The Band Light self describes themselves as a mix of One Direction and Fleetwood Mac, so we're obvi obsessed. Their new song "Flower Song" is gonna be your next anthem.

Seventeen-year-old Cloe Wilder's music pairs perfectly with the TTPD. Her latest EP My Summer on the Road dropped April 19 and it is full of relatable and emotional songs that will get you in your summer feels. Add "Afterglow" to your playlist, pls.

4. Gracie Abrams 


Gracie's new album is coming June 21! The first single "Risk" is out now (btw, she worked with Aaron Dessner on this one). We've got a feeling that The Secret of Us is gonna be on repeat.

5.  Henry Moodie 

@henrymoodie i miss singing beat up car with you ❤️‍🩹 #fyp #newmusic #beatupcar ♬ beat up car henry moodie - Henry Moodie

Henry gives major indie-pop vibes that feel like driving with the windows down on a summer night with your besties. He cites Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo and Conan Gray as his inspo, so you already know the music is gonna be amazing. Add his single "beat-up car" to your summer road trip playlist stat.
