Joe & The Anchor Releases New Song “California”
- Swedish alt-pop band Joe & The Anchor released a new song “California” on October 8, 2021.
The song is the first single off of their upcoming debut album “Coming Of Age”.
It was written by Viktor Edsjö, Ruben Sonesson and Joakim Rosenlund, who also produced the track.
The band has already filmed a music video for the song, which will be premiered soon.
The track features the 90s-inspired sound, and follows a difficult few months when the band members had to experience the harsh reality of loss.
“We wrote California during a very turbulent time in Joe's life, when it seemed like the whole world was turning upside down for our singer,” the band said of the song. “The song comes from a realization that nothing lasts forever and how hard it can be to lose something or someone. The theme of California itself, and the lyric 'California daydreaming' that kicks off the song, represents our dreams as a band - longing for a faraway place where the sun shines and we can forget our troubles. When we recorded California, it felt just like when we were writing music as teenagers in the bedroom, and that filterless, analog feel is something we think really shines through in the 90s-inspired sound.”
They added, ”California showcases a more genuine and experimental side of us, and we're very proud to release it to you all!”
