Prides X Birchbox Man: The Spring Fever Playlist

Scottish synthpop sensation Prides is enjoying a bright 2014, having just wrapped a U.S. tour in support of their The Seeds You Sow EP. The title track is an empowering one: "[It’s] about realizing that the things that happen around you are a result of your own actions,” says vocalist Stewart Brock. “The vocal hook is all about letting go, losing yourself, shouting as loud as you can, caution to the wind." That about sums up our feelings here at the tail end of this brutal winter. So we enlisted the guys to assemble a springtime playlist to fit the same theme.

Listen to the Prides X Birchbox Man Spring Fever Playlist below. You can also stream the full playlist on Spotify.
