    Anna Straker - “Late Night Swimming”

    Some songs grow on you with time, while a few rare gems have the ability to completely captivate you in an instant. When it comes to Anna Straker’s debut single “Late Night Swimming,” the latter seems to be the case.

    “Late Night Swimming” is simultaneously tranquilizing and catchy. Straker—who wrote, produced, and performed the single on her own—created a tempo with the perfect balance. Whether it finds itself on a playlist to set a relaxing mood or to start a party, somehow this track is transformative enough to fit into any scenario and still sound just as good.—Adrienne Black
