This song is the buzz of electric lights whizzing past your car as you drive into the city, the warm white glow from your headlights, the electric red sheen of your car. It's an old car, certainly, but one that's been with you as long as you've been driving. Leather interior seats, air conditioner blowing the summer heat off of your skin.
This song is your friend's duffle bag, stuffed with clothes, and her hand listlessly out of the window. The brush of her hair wisping around her face like it's weightless. In a way, she is, you are, the world behind you. This song is a relenting parent, finally letting your best friend move out of her house and into yours, this song is the start of a new future.
Blake Cross is a college student in Virginia who, in my opinion, has a glowing future in pop music. He's got a retro vibe, with a sound that's familiar but not overdone. You can keep up with him on his social media, and you totally should.
