It may be hard to believe that there is a website made for going poolside, but there definitely is and it’s awesome.
Let’s take a trip back to the 80s (with some ambiguous 90s vibes) and groove out in the sun. Poolside FM is the hottest new site looking stepping out valiantly from a time machine brandishing its pastel colours and retro dance music with pride.
Poolside FM has a history of delivering the vibe, launching in 2014 to present visitors with a playlist of retro-sounding music accompanied by short video clips that make for the best 80s throwback since Stranger Things. They’ve redesigned their site for an even fuller time-capsule experience.
The new site emulates a classic, old Mac OS home screen for navigating through the music player, video player and more. It takes you back instantly with its retro design accompanied by video clips so 80s they look like they’re snatched straight from Baywatch.
For audio Poolside FM take a SoundCloud stream from a playlist of about 250 songs. They are hoping to build that up to 500 different tracks so that visitors can stream all day by the pool without hearing any repeats.
The creators say of the site: “Poolside FM was conceived one awfully rainy summer in the Highlands of Scotland – a virtual vacation, if you will. The audio and video streams are curated to inject a healthy dose of serotonin into your brain.”
There’s even a merch store so if you love the aesthetic you can put that classic wavey look on your head with a cap or don the Poolside FM tops for the journey to the pool.
So whether the sun’s shining and you want to complement it, or if you’re inside in the dark wishing you were in your boardies ready for a dip; Get poolside on Poolside FM.
