Man, what a song. Ridiculously catchy and most effectively it’s all delivered with an effortless and breezy, light-headed and heavy-hearted, sway and swagger. Like The Lemonheads and The Jayhawks – that nexus of sweet Americana and power-pop. Just a perfect country-rock, guitar pop nugget.

“Hot summer nights. Brick weed & mezcal. July 4th fireworks — and a dance and a drink down at the White Horse. This is a love song for a Texas summer without COVID.”
