It’s been a minute since I checked in on LA’s Bay Ledges. Like many who’ve come to love the band, my gateway drug into their lush melodies with synths and punchy beats scattered throughout was “Hearts”. Last year the band released two EPs, The EP and Fountain Tropical. Yesterday they unveiled their latest single, “Electric Dream”, which comes from their forthcoming In Waves EP, which will be dropping at the end of the month on November 30th. The single follows songs “Whenever You Sleep” and “I Remember”, which will also be included on the EP.
On Thursday singer and mastermind behind Bay Ledges Zach Hurd spoke to PopMatters about the song, where he explained,
“It's about going out and dancing. The whole scene - standing in line at some club, hoping you might meet someone that night and trying to break out of your self-awareness. For me, there's always been this hump I have to get over of forgetting about what I look like to other people when I'm dancing. The song observes that conflict of not wanting to be judged but also really wanting to move and be free.”
Bay Ledges is currently on tour with Magic City Hippies in the southeast. Make sure you go check them out if you’re able. Dates below!
