California indie dream weavers ASHRR are starting the new year with spellbinding reverie via a new single "Sunshine Low," which made its debut this week on LA's influential radio station KCRW 89.9FM. With its insatiable Summer vibes, doused in the gauzy washed-out chill of what it might be like for a hyper-real fantasy to become reality, "Sunshine Low" evokes the mellow feeling of holding on to an almost-perfect moment with a significant other and never wanting to let go; “I wanna stay on the other side of grey / and swim under the stars in the sunlight.” Casting its rays through a cloudy filter it marks a celestial turning point for the band whilst paving the way for plenty more to come.
Commenting on "Sunshine Low," multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Josh Charles says:
“Certainly there are highs and lows that happen to us all. Being able to appreciate the sunshine is so important because there are times when it’s not there so it is only natural to really want to celebrate it when it appears.”
“Sunshine Low” has very intoxicating but also sweet and involving harmonies, leaving behind a nice warm feeling even after the song has finished. It’s breezy and it brings the bit of summer we all need during these cold months. This single isn’t just a hypnotic dream-like indie dance track that showcases their raw talent for songwriting, but it also shines a light on a new direction for the band for which I am very excited. This quickly rising LA Indie-rock band is something you would not want to miss out on.
