Fine-Tune Your Summer Playlist With These 5 Performers

Still unabashedly belting out Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe"? Yeah, we are, too. While we'll always have a soft spot for the silly, we're always searching for the next big hit. We have loads of road trips on deck, and we can't keep track of how many backyard BBQs we've agreed to go to. This summer is in need of sticky-sweet lyrics and bass-centric beats, and we made it our mission to amp up our poolside playlists.
Our research lead us to many L.A. natives (we're kind of pros at nailing warm-weather anthems), but we also discovered some stellar sounds from across the pond. Add any (or all) of these five catchy tunes to your next set, and we're sure your buds will be begging you to DJ all of their upcoming summer fetes.
