THE WHO: Bay Ledges (Los Angeles, CA)
THE WHAT: Even if you are the subject of a breakup song, it might be pretty damned hard to grudge against that breakup song when it shimmers with warm nostalgia and packs a gentle heart punch the way that “I Wonder” by the LA-based indie pop outfit Bay Ledges does.
“It’s about wanting the best for the other person, instead of coming from a bitter place,” Bay Ledges frontman, Zach Hurd, admits and just like Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” it’s a welcome and refreshing air of alt to the typical (and oh-so-tedious) trash-thy-ex song.
Also refreshing: a band in powder blue suits and pink socks aimlessly ambling about in the California desert. It simply is.
Thank you, Bay Ledges. Next.
