Trails and Ways – Jacaranda

Screen shot 2015-05-25 at 10.19.20Just listen to those muted guitar riffs. If that doesn’t make you want to get into the summer spirit then just wait for the lead guitar in the chorus. Still nothing? Well then you might want to spend the summer indoors as Trails and Ways perfectly encapsulate the sunny season as if they were moulded by the purest daylight.

Of course, being based in California probably means they get a fair bit more of the good weather than we do here in London but it feels as though they’ve spent every moment of their lives surrounded by the sunlight as they know exactly how it feels and in under three minutes they can bring the joy of a warm summer’s day into your ears no matter where you are. With delicately judged effects running amok in the background, the guitars throughout are a sheer delight to listen to and the vocals that lead the line have enough character for a short story. However, nothing compares to the ideal chorus which has all the spirit of the sunshine that you could ever ask for.

Screw it, I’m braving the grey skies and wearing shorts today.
