If there was a contest to choose one track to represent the sound of summer 2011, this breathtaking new tune from New York rockers Joywave would be a pretty good candidate. The 3-and-a-half minute long "Winnipeg" features only two short verses: "What could I become?" and "Where could I go?". The amount of lyrical optimism built up inside those tiny yet momentous questions alone is enough to have us googly-eyed in love all summer long, but Joywave doesn't just stop there. No, they open the track with sounds of distancing fireworks, bringing forth memories of 4th of July's from the past and putting that image of cozy summer nights in our heads even before the music starts. Finally, with our ears already firmly in their grasp, the song takes off, blossoming from trickling piano strikes into a euphoric explosion of jovial synths and juicy harmonies. It's "85 degrees and not a cloud in sight" kind of music, made perfect for early morning wave watching, mid-day hammock napping, and late night star gazing. Indulge yourself below, but be forewarned, this might just be that summer love you were looking for.
