As a resident of the chilly Midwest, I’ve heard it said that without the bitter winters we wouldn’t appreciate the summer sun – but I don’t really buy it. As they explain on newly-released single Dreamin’ California, Contact trio The Freshmen treasure their home state’s beautiful weather so much that, despite its rough spots, they wouldn’t, well, dream of living anywhere else. THX‘s guitar/piano beat, not sampled from but reminiscent of the Mamas and the Papas’ classic single California Dreamin’, set a nostalgically retro mood as rappers A. Wolf and Kristo paint a realistic but affectionate portrait of the Golden State’s major hotspots, taking listeners all the way from the Bay down to Hollywood. Needless to say, this track has “summer jam” written all over it. Those craving more warm-weather music from the Left Coast threesome will be able to find what they seek on their debut studio album, Hello There, scheduled to hit online retailers and record stores everywhere sometime next month.
