Stop checking your college application status and listen to “Sweet Talk” by Saint Motel. With all this spring-like weather, it is the perfect song to make you feel the same happiness that comes with warmth and the end of seasonal depression. 

The indie-pop band from Los Angeles has been making music since 2007. They have made two albums and six EPs overall, along with a two-part motion picture soundtrack.

“Sweet Talk” is one of those songs that you listen to and it automatically puts you in a better mood. The beginning starts with an upbeat drum until the actual lyrics start. This part just makes me want to begin clapping along, preparing to scream the lyrics.

With all this nice weather, all I want to do is put my sunroof down and drive blasting this song. It brings back the careless moments of summer that were so stress-free. 

Other great songs by Saint Motel include “My Type,” “Cold Cold Man,” and “Born Again.” I recommend streaming “Sweet Talk” and the others listed above on your preferred streaming service.
