As the golden season of the summer passes into its last stages, laments and lullabies feel more appropriate than the heady, rushing dream pop that usually gets the summery label. Los Angeles’ Cristina Black offers a mournful tale of heartbreak and desire in the heat of the sun that drifts away into nothing as summer abates.
There’s a ’50s-style to the song’s slow, supple melody line and an innocent charm, even as she divulges the sad details of a messy affair. So goes life, so goes summer. Here’s one for your bummer summer playlists. Listen to the one off track below and check out more songs by Cristina over at her Bandcamp.
