The band’s new single “California Love” – released this Friday 20th April – follows previous singles “Teenage Dream”, “King Kong” (as well as avideo for the album title track “Horizons”)
On an album that introduces undulating keyboards as a new and fundamental element of their sound, with harmonies and chiming delay guitars under attack with fuzz, all enveloped in dark and pervasive melancholic melodies, “California Love” takes a slightly different direction and see the band in a quieter, more introspective, mood.
Ejlertsen talks about new single California Love:
“This song to me really has that sunny element of California to it. When I came up with the main melody theme for this song I just knew it had to be a song about California. We recorded our first album in Los Angeles, California. This was a magical period. Like a time warp – just an adventure to be there living the dream. The lyrics are not specifically about this though. It’s really a bittersweet love song about meeting a special person that brings that sunny spirit and warmness of California into your life.”
