Summer’s on its way. It will be possibly the oddest summers any of us have ever known, but we still have the music. Which brings me onto ‘Chad’ the new single from LA based outfit All Things Blue which oozes summer and breezy psychedelic pop.
Chad is a love song of sorts, about ‘having your heart dangling by someone else’s hook for too long’ and is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album. Speaking about the track, singer India said:
‘See-saws are fun until you're riding an emotional see-saw; when you want someone that doesn't want you, but makes sure to keep you around. Sometimes you only realise in retrospect; that person was just a Chad. Also, during the whole vocal take I was holding Jon's week-old baby boy which is why I laugh at the end cause he fell asleep’.
The albums’ subject matter covers everything from pensive love songs to directly addressing social issues and political ironies; frontwoman India Coombs (otherwise known as Blue) herself compares the album to Gabriel Garcia Márquez’s ever-relevant novel ‘Love In The Time of Cholera’. So now you know.
We like this tune, it's cool. You can listen to it here.
