Reliably informed

California Sun, the fifth and latest release by Redcar/Saltburn-based indie band Lines From A Poem, is a classically bittersweet summer song. Nostalgic overtones permeate the piece and its lyrics, it being inspired by singer, guitarist and songwriter Gary Wright’s experiences travelling in California.

Wright’s vocals fit perfectly with the song’s sentimental vibe, with a timbre somewhere between Brian Molko’s and Neil Tennant’s. Similarly, though inspired by the American West Coast, the band’s North Sea origins are not left behind; as with other previous releases of theirs, such as Saltburn and Reflective Walls, both of which featured on their debut EP, Staring At City Lights.

Whether of Redcar or L.A., the picture their latest single paints is reflective, poignant and touching.
