I’m currently on the west coast having a little beach holiday with my family. Made me think of this tune from Future Generations’ new album due out later this month. That guitar riff near the end is so cool.
“I don’t want to lose you to a coast”
Check out Future Generations on the band’s Website where you can learn of upcoming northeast US shows and buy their music.
