If Finding Nemo, decades of Aquaman comics, and the massive catalog of bands with “Beach/Surf/Sea/etc.” in their name have taught us anything, it’s that quite a few artists draw inspiration from the relaxed, carefree atmosphere that often accompanies an ocean view. But not every band can be King of the Beach, so for this playlist I wanted to use the songs’ watery atmospherics and imagery to illustrate a journey down a series of increasingly ferocious rapids, with the tonal and dynamic shifts mirroring the river’s unpredictable flux between tranquility and brutality.
