D. Marin Perez released a lovable Americana toned folk pop single dubbed "Los Angeles" and it's a love song to the place...sort of. It may be a song about how the Los Angeles is stuffed with things that aren't oh so great after all.
The song thrives and shows a ton of color and vibrant pop elements like horns, and backing vocals that sound classic all on top of a 1950's doo-wop drum beat.
This is a sort of classic rock song and it goes through the feeling of not really digging Los Angeles, to warming up to it.
I think that's how it is for a lot of people. A bit scary at first but soon enough it becomes your home. It's a great point of view that paints a picture so many of us have actually been through.
The single is certainly a lot of fun and it's youthful energy is addictive to say the least.
Perez has done a hell of a job getting us hooked on the sound quickly and using a building arrangement and hooky chorus to do the job right.
Upon digging around Spotify a bit more, we found the last release before "Los Angeles" was a record form 2017 called Decade + Days and it's much more singer songwriter stripped down style but still very heartfelt and moving.
All these songs are well worth a listen and "Los Angeles" is a great place to start.
