It’s Summer, Get To Know Your TANLINES

SUMMER IS  HERE!…ok well it officially starts tomorrow but we can’t contain our excitement so we’re getting started a day early.   Ahhh Summer, the season of extended daylight, backyard BBQs, road trips with friends, summer playlists, and Tanlines + Lemonade of course.

Apologies for that simple and obvious play on words.  But honestly as sure as you’re likely to have some tan lines after laying around the pool drinking a glass of lemonade this summer, we’re convinced both bands (Tanlines and Lemonade) will be on your iPods/stereos while doing so.  But don’t take our word for it, Creator’s Project said that Tanlines are “destined to become your summer soundtrack”, and New York Magazine, Stereogum, and Refinery 29 couldn’t agree more, naming “All Of Me” one of their Songs Of The Summer.

Anyhow since we’ll be spending all summer together, it’s probably a good time to get to know your Tanlines better.  Courtesy of Creator’s Project, click HERE for an intimate look at the band Tanlines, their recording process, how they formed, and much much more.

Also Tanlines will be performing across the US all summer long, starting tomorrow night with an official summer kick off show at the House of Vans in Brooklyn.  A full list of summer tour dates is below.
