Dirty Gold – “California Sunrise” – 1.22.2012
“she waits for the summer to find a lover
she looks for him underneath the sand
but the air is getting colder
the summer’s getting older
you need to make up your mind”
It’s no surprise this 60’s-esque dream pop duo hails from the golden state. Dirty Gold’s California Sunrise’s warm dreamy melodies, Afro-pop guitar riffs, and reverberated child-like vocals will leave you in a hazy trance with nothing but babes, brews and bonfires on the mind. Pardon the alliteration, it came naturally.
The song is about summer romances fading away as winter hits. It makes sense though, everyone looks more desirable with a fresh tan.
