Summer on the Fire Escape, A Playlist

Just as thrilling as it is to revel in the joys of summer with garden picnics, outdoor movie nights, and sandy beach days, so can the small moments of a summer spent in the city, particularly from one’s fire escape. The space may be small, and the sights many be stifled by tall buildings, but the space is yours, adorned in plants and twinkle lights and perhaps a few pillows, enough space to make your own little world come to life and greet the streets of the bustling city around you. These are the songs we prefer to send off into the sweet air of the evenings that feel like a dream, so warm and welcoming for a time to yourself in the loving moments that the summertime brings.
