This song plays in the background of your beach fantasy. This song is the bright red of a lifeguard swimsuit, the smell of coconut lotion and sunscreen, the tingle of a cold drink in your hand. This song is watching the lifeguard's hips sway side to side, thinking about getting close to them. This song is the burn of the sun on your back as you walk towards them. This song is the beads of sweat on the back of your neck, from nerves or the heat you're not sure. You approach the lifeguard, pushing your sunglasses up higher onto your nose; they see you, they smile. They'd been wanting your attention too. Your beach fantasy is a beach reality, and this song is still playing. It's going to be a hot summer.
Kendall Schmidt and his band Heffron Drive are back in the game, releasing single after single, the first releases since their LP in 2014. They have a knack for catchy, enjoyable songs and this song is no exception. With obvious rock influences, but strong pop sensibilities, 'Hot Summer' is July's perfect song. Grab a drink and put this song on the stereo. Let your fantasy be a reality for a little while.
