The great thing about Summer Fiction is that their songs are so, well, summery. Indie pop music is the sort that so often remains unchanged, boundaries un-pushed, and you get a little of that here. But rather than being a hindrance, it’s comforting. “By The Sea” blends soothing male and female vocals with plenty of hooks, a soft guitar strum and catchy bass line, and a playful drum rhythm.
Summer Fiction’s songs reference 60s pop, and “By The Sea” is no exception. There are no unexpected punches, no overly melancholy rhymes, no painful harmonies. It’s simply good, true pop music. Grab the single from the Summer Fiction bandcamp page
