Los Angeles transplants the Soft White Sixties have shared a new song, and it’s more of what we’ve come to expect from the rock and soul band out of San Francisco.
If you’re unfamiliar with this band, get on the bandwagon. They deliver some of the most entertaining live shows and their sound has a lot of depth to it. Think a five-piece Black Keys.
The new track is called “Brick By Brick”, and is very timely given the current political climate. The song is frontman Octavio Genera’s version of his grandparents coming to the country to make a better live for themselves. The song was recorded in Van Nuys at New Monkey Studio. Give it a listen below:
“Our first night in the studio was Election Night, so naturally that environment crept onto this record,” Genera told Yahoo Music. “It was hard not to take some offense to someone claiming that a wall and the people on the other side of that wall were the cause of so many problems.”
The band also recorded a Spanish-language version of the song, called “Piedra a Piedra”, which you can listen to here. We’ll keep you posted on when the band tours Los Angeles, you won’t want to miss them.
