MEGG’s second newest single ‘Summer in the South Bay’
Following her most recent hard-hitting single ‘SHAMOO’, LA’s South Bay born & raised artist, MEGG, is changing things up with her newest release ‘Summer in the South Bay’. Rather than travel down the traditional Pop road, MEGG merges her love for Pop music with her SoCal Punk/Reggae roots and creates her own Beach Pop sound - a total summer vibe that features a beautiful pedal steel guitar for a little sonic sunset moment and recalls the carefreeness of her childhood summers growing up in Redondo Beach. Summer in the South Bay prompts you to hit the pause button, take a moment to bathe in your favorite summer memories and intends to remind us of the freedom that comes with being a blissfully reckless kid.
MEGG says about the release:
“I had the inspiration for the song on my way to the studio for a session. I was feeling pretty weighed down by the adult, day to day crap and was bummed that I’d be inside on such a beautiful day.
That’s when I started thinking about what I wished I was doing instead and immediately my days at the beach came to mind. In its most simplest form, Summer in the South Bay is an ode to the warm memories of what summer was like for me as a kid growing up in a beach town. I think about my childhood summers often, how lucky I was to be raised by the beach and how unknowingly therapeutic the water has always been for me. Man, every day of the summer was the same - you met up with the neighborhood gang, mobbed down to the beach, swam and fucked around until the sun set, found some trouble to get into and then walked back home before the streetlights came on. It was such a simple and easy time and I miss it! I think as we get older, especially me, we tend to become wrapped up in our jobs, bills, errands and to-do lists that we forget to make time for the things we really love - to go outside and PLAY. I hope Summer in the South Bay reminds you of your favorite summer days and how easy it used to be to disconnect from the bullshit. “We get wet, just to forget, we don’t wanna think about tomorrow”...”
Summer in the South Bay paints a nostalgic sonic picture of the feeling that comes with the freedom of being a kid in the summertime, the inevitably dirty bare feet and the endless adventure that a day outside provides. Don’t we all miss those days?
