Enjoy a Young Summer no matter the season

Palm trees, salty air, ocean breeze and driving with the top down — the small things that make up a whole season of summer. Some might even call it a Young Summer.

Washington, D.C.-based electronic pop songstress Bobbie Allen did just that. Her band, Young Summer, started when she found herself opening for American singer/songwriter Trent Dabbs from Mississippi. With great anticipation and hard work; Allen released her debut EP, “Fever Dream,” which made her songs infectious across the country. The song, “Waves That Rolled You Under” made placements on hit television shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries.

Allen’s voice, compared to Sarah MacLachlan and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, is smooth and soulful. Her voice is light but is strong enough to carry heavy lyrics. Signed to Ready Set Records, Young Summer’s debut album SIREN, which Allen collaborated with Dabbs for, dropped in August of 2014. Get it now on iTunes:
