I’m not one of the lucky ones that get this lovely President’s Day three day weekend. It’s right back to the grind for me after my regular two day weekend. However, while I was driving out to Wine Country this weekend I took time to listen to Frankie Ballard’s new album Sunshine & Whiskey. The album has such a fun, laid back vibe to it that it’s perfect driving music. When it was time to head into work this morning I found myself skipping right to the title track, Sunshine & Whiskey. It’s got a bouncing beat, sunny instrumentation, and Frankie’s voice will absolutely make you melt like you’re actually in the midst of a summer heatwave. The lyrics are fun, especially topped by that melodic, hooky chorus with gentle harmonies. It’s definitely one of those tracks that is a party wrapped up in music, the perfect weekend song, or a nice groove to add to your work day while you’re dreaming about the weekend.
If you’re stuck in the office today, click play below, and give yourself a little dose of weekend sunshine. It’s one of those songs that will take you away from real life for three minutes, I promise.
