New Music Mixtape: Plucky Staff Picks

Sounds of imagination.

Summer is right around the corner, and with it comes the promise of BBQs with friends, days spent outside and the reawakened desire to imagine and create after the cold winter months. To capture this spirit -- and maybe nod to films by Wes Anderson and Tim Burton with scores by Mark Mothersbaugh and Danny Elfman -- our team of curators gathered a handful of songs perfect for the bright, quirky or imaginative moments in life (or your next film).

From whimsical arrangements to bold, empowering strums, these uplifting, hopeful songs are all led by stringed instruments. Whether you’re listening to the metronomic beat and pizzicato strings of Lightspeak’s “Lumen” or the ascending, dynamic orchestration of Keen Collective’s “Bright Futures”, these songs are sure to inspire. Listen below and get swept away into sunny days ahead.
