Some songs are meant for long road trips, but there the rare gems that sound exactly what a road trip is. Such is the case with Raised on TV‘s new single, which just happens to be about a road trip. As the jangly surf-rock vibe and the soothing vocals ring through the song, a feeling of adventure and excitement overcomes you. It’s the feeling you get when you the ocean breezes gently sweep over your face, the smell of the sea overwhelms your senses, and the views of the rocky coastline leave you breathless. Now whether the song is just a weekend getaway or re-capturing the journey tens of thousands took back in the ’60s and early ’70s to the famous folk festival is unclear, but this tune would work for both scenarios.
“Big Sur (Up the Coast)” is taken from Raised on TV’s debut album, Season 1, which is out now and get be picked up on Bandcamp. If you think this song echoes Real Estate, then seriously check out the entire LP.
The band is comprised of Keaton Rogers (vocals/guitar), Kacey Greenwood (drums), and Ryan Weiss (bass).
