Playlist of the week: Picnic tunes
What is a picnic without some background noise? In honour of Picnic Week in the UK, cafébabel English has compiled a genre-defying listicle of the musthave songs for your next outdoor meal.
Nina Nesbitt - Way in the World
As this is a British holiday, let's start with rising star Nina Nesbitt and her chanson dedicated to finding your place in this big world, or in other words, your spot on the picnic blanket.
Elliphant - Music is Life
When summer finally comes to the North, Scandinavians emerge from hibernation to bask in the glorious sun. This Swedish MC mixes reggae, rap and pop in a potent mixture that warms the soul after a frozen winter.
S.A.R.S. - Mir i ljubav
This location, along with the Serbian melodies reminiscent of Sting, is the ideal location for a secluded romantic picnic or a gathering of cult members.
Oh Land - Rainbow
Danish sensation Oh Land has a similar effect on the Danes as she serenades them out of their slumber with this ode to rainbows, the ideal picnic weather.
Seeed - Cherry Oh
In Germany, there is a special picnic tradition: barbeque. Germans often compete for the choiciest spot to show off their grilling supremacy.
Dehli2Dublin - Apples
Indian bhangra and Irish fiddle never sounded so good. The psychedelic video may remind you of when your last LSD-induced hallucinations turned a traditional picnic upsidedown.
The Common Linnets - Sun Song
Sun. Country Music. What else does a picnic need to create the ideal ambiance than the Dutch contribution to this list?
Locomondo - Dromos Tis Kardias
Greek reggae. Enough said.
