Although it’s winter in the United States right now, you might be transported to the summer months by the disposition of the Australian singer Vassy, whose latest single “In the Sun” is the kind of summer jam that’s designed to be blasted out of hatchback car radios and beach boomboxes. Of course, it’s summertime in Vassy’s native Australia, but this buoyant pop jam is enough to make it feel as if the season is spreading all around the world.
Vassy tells PopMatters about her aspirations for this summertime jam: “I hope this puts a little sunshine into your world. I worked on this song with Tim Myers (formerly of One Republic), one of my favorite producers. We had so much fun creating this song, it just makes me feel good, charged and ready to put both feet down. I hope it does the same for you too!”
