A summer love affair can be thrilling but only when both parties are on the same page. In the appropriately titled ‘Summer Lovers’, Kaysha Louvain tells the story of a special connection over summer. Seemingly falling in love, the couple comes to a startling realisation as the season comes to an end. Using relatable lyrics and her knack for storytelling, Louvain has you lost in the tale.

On the chorus, there is an increase in the instrumentation that makes you think about waves crashing against the beach and the wind whipping through your hair. The guitar solo later in the track has a touch of sadness to it that wraps around a strange resilience.
