Summer rain is an evocative thing. The smell of the water hitting parched earth, the brilliance of the refreshed grass and foliage, the mad panic of people at a garden party dashing to shelter, Pimm’s sloshing around in their glasses. Perhaps it’s just us, but it seems an exclusive trope of British weather to interrupt our well-laid plans by chucking it down as soon as we’ve all put on our best sun hats – picnics are left sodden and all we have to show for our efforts are a few soggy Kalamata olives, a puddle of Percy Pigs and wind-battered bunting.
But it’s something to be cherished as for many it holds many memories. Let’s raise a damp paper cup to the delightful downpour – and why not dedicate a playlist to it so we can soundtrack the soaked summer that we all (semi-begrudgingly) love?
