Sometimes the only thing you can do is to turn up the volume, close your eyes, and forget about the world for a few moments. And Elovay’s new song “Sort It Out” is your ticket to escape far, far away to brighter days where nothing matters but the beat. The Los Angeles based quartet’s new track is a combination of laid back indie surf-rock riffs and soothing lyrics that will have you completely chilled out and ready for the weekend. Singer/songwriter Xavier Brinkman explains the meaning behind “Sort It Out”:

“This song is written about the struggle in LA which I think most people in this city can relate to. It’s about the moment you realize no one really cares about your problems and you have no choice but to “sort it out” or go home. So many people in this city are going off blind faith that what they’re doing will work out in the end, and these lyrics kind of question that mentality. Are we even able recognize when it has “worked out” or are we too busy worrying about the next thing? Success is a staircase, not a doorway and that harsh truth is a tough pill to swallow because we all want success RIGHT NOW.” 

It’s easy to tell there’s lots of success in Elovay’s future with music like this, and you’ll enjoy hearing every step of their way up. Lucky for you, you won’t have long to wait for more—the band are putting out a new EP in September. Recorded at a studio in Venice Beach, you can hear the California summer soaking into every crevice of “Sort It Out”, and life ain’t so bad when the sun is shining. So crack open a cold one, hit play below, and chill to a chorus of “I feel your pain, I really do, and I feel the same”…

“Although the lyrics in this song are kind of serious and a bit of a cry for help, we were able to capture a really fun and upbeat vibe which I love. This was the first time we worked with a real producer and it made all the difference. He was the guiding light on this song and really helped us define our sound and set the tone for the rest of the EP. Goodbye sad boy grunge, hello twangy surf pop!”
