For the ride: A set of upbeat tracks to get you all pumped up and ready for your trip, perfect for bopping along with when you’re cruising top deck, front row on that double decker bus to Repulse Bay or for hiking along to on the way to Sai Wan rock pools.
1. On Our Way – The Royal Concept
See what we did there ;)? Fans of the FIFA 14’ will already be familiar with this track, which was featured in the game. Vaguely reminiscent of Phoenix and The Strokes, this new(ish) band from Sweden are definitely on their way to something big. It also doesn’t hurt that their frontman David has got some serious swag.
2. I Got U – Duke Dumont ft. Jax Jones
I Got U manages to strike a fine balance between chill and upbeat, perfect for a relaxing ride. We also think that riff between 0:25 – 0:40 gives the song a strong summer Caribbean / Hawaiian vibe, if you know what we mean.
3. Wasted – Tiesto ft. Matthew Koma
He likes it better when they’re wasted. So do we.
4. Nobody To Love – Sigma
Hong Kong humidity bringing you down? All you need is to check out this beautifully shot road-trip themed music video to get you back into your outdoor mood. Checking out the music is optional.
…we kid. The music is the best bit clearly.
5. Celebrate – Mika ft. Pharrell
We realize we may be pushing it when we categorize Mika as “hipster” music, but with all the love Pharrell is garnering at the moment, we decided that it wouldn’t hurt to mention this bubbly track. We also know that IB results just came out over the weekend. We hope all you readers out that got results that were worth celebrating.
Part 2 – For the storm coming up next.
