The Sometimes Island Releases New Song “Neon Summer”
Los Angeles-based indie-pop band The Sometimes Island, consisting of Matt Blankenship Jr (vocals), Nick Lopiano (drums) and Bryan Mears (bass), released a new song “Neon Summer” on July 12, 2023.
The track was written by Matt Blankenship Jr, Skyler Williams, Nick Lopiano, Luke Bishop, Tuna OTB, and Bryan Mears.
Sonically, the track features an undercurrent of tropical, beachy themes, with lyrics that touch on 90s nostalgia and summer imagery.
Matt Blankenship Jr said of the song, “I hope this song inspires people to spontaneously do something summery. I hope they're inspired to forget themselves for a second and do what makes them happy, and feel childlike.”
He added about their music, “I think the point of our music is movement. We make music that people can participate physically with, not just think about. Something to get you into your body and out of your head for a while."
- The band shared on social media, “This is the opening of a new chapter for the band, an embodiment of the full band sound, emerging from the solo, bedroom-studio style productions of 2020-2022 pandemic times. So stoked for ya'll to listen 😎”
