Thunderclouds - Sia, Diplo, Labrinth, LSD

No attempt at a summer anthem is complete without a bunch of supporting artists, and Thunderclouds packs ’em in. The sultry and instantly recognizable sounds of Sia lead this groovy summer bop. While it’s not a song that’ll turn up the party, it’s a perfect song for the start of it. Just don’t listen too hard to the lyrics — unless you wanna be in a ~mood~.
