Coachella Playlist: CHVRCHES

We’re super into Chvrches front woman, Lauren Mayberry’s style. We love how she pairs her rock and roll vibe with flawy dresses and playful prints. And her sweet melodic voice? I mean… <3 When this single first came out we were jamming to it in the office and are now so excited to go see them play live at Coachella this year! Who are you most excited to go see?

5. Chvrches: “The Mother We Share”

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Ellie Goulding

The video for Ellie Goulding’s latest single “Goodness Gracious” is the perfect combination of cute, fun, and psychedelic. We love the colors and styling shown… plus, how adorable is Ellie?! She’s our #tuesdaytune for the week as we countdown to Coachella!

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Lorde

We’re continuing our Coachella Playlist with another #tuesdaytune from the 2014 line-up. We love badass women who are out there doing it and this next artist embodies just that, all at age 17! Lorde’s uniquely intriguing voice has brought her to #1 in the US, making her the first New Zealand solo artist to do so. We can’t get enough of her and the hit that brought her to the states. Ok, ready to jam with us?

2. Lorde: “Royals”

Remember to join us every Tuesday as we release a new #tuesdaytune with another one of our favorite artists from this year’s line up. Enjoy!
