summer anthem danae

With Memorial Day weekend coming up, we’re ready to throw wide our arms and dive into summer face first. And what’s the perfect accompaniment to that carefree spirit? A great soundtrack. That’s why we’re amped to have discovered DANAE, an independent Nashville-based pop artist, and her latest single, “Direction.”

Watch the newly-released music video below and tell us you’re not just as excited as we are for that summer-night, wind-in-your-hair, anything-is-possible  feeling.

And, because summer affords us extra hours of daylight to do a little good, DANAE absolutely loves the elegant, yet edgy design of this handmade necklace from Sarah Bayot, founder of Kicheko Goods, a socially-conscious company that uses sales to directly support education. Each purchase of a Direction Necklace provides a scholarship for under-resourced children to attend school in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Shop it here.

Find more from DANAE on iTunes, Spotify, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat @DANAEMUSIC.

What are you most excited for this summer?
