“Safe In LA” — Gold Motel
If you’re looking for the perfect summer song, look no further than “Safe in LA” by Gold Motel. It is a perfect mix of pop and motown, complete with a tambourine rhythm that will make anyone want to get up and dance.
For me, the tune brings to mind sunny days at the beach, riding a bike down the sidewalk and feeling the sun on your skin. It reminds me of the snow cone stand where all my high school friends hung out in the summer. I think of popsicles and sprinklers; of water fights and road trips; of camping and flip-flop tans.
“Safe in LA” is a sugary sweet and addictive retro flashback. With a noticeable Beach Boys influence, catchy hook and sweet melody, it will surely become the number one track on any summer playlist.
