Mari, a blogger and model known for her effortless free-spirited style fronts our pages this month sounding on what’s relevant, riveting, and real. Check out her top 5 chosen tracks perfect for that special date night featuring music ranging from The xx to John Mayer.
1. Melt – JONES
Armed with a soft, smooth voice, British alternative-pop singer presents a spirited track that sounds like the embodiment of a perfect-weathered summer night. This is one track you’ll definitely want to accompany you on a chill evening.
2. Islands – The xx
Just after a successful show In Manila for their I See You tour a few weeks ago, The xx just proved that they’re a diverse powerhouse. Ranging from electro tracks to love songs like Islands, the British trio knows just how to pull on our heartstrings.
3. Want You Back – HAIM
If there’s anyone we go to for 80s-inspired bops, it’s sister trio, HAIM. Their recent release, Something To Tell You is a groovy mix of love and longing and its single, Want You Back is an anthem of giving in to past affections.
4. Turn Me On – Norah Jones

5. Love On The Weekend – John Mayer
Back with a new album, blues crooner, John Mayer returns with a laidback track that’s completely apt for your roundtrip mix. “I think it’s a very cool vibe. I think this is a single you can bring with you. I’ve had so much dancing to it in my kitchen, and it’s yours now,” he says about the song.
