“After hibernating for three years we woke up and wrote some new songs! Our Peachy Keen EP will come out on November 15th and here is my favourite song of the new bunch, ‘Peachy Keen;. I wrote this song while on a film noir and Twin Peaks kick and I think the groove is something different than what we have done before. Hope you dig it!” – Golden Cinema

Who: Calico Blue is a band from Austin, TX that’s not afraid to get creative with their sound. According to Facebook, the group makes “Sad Girl Disco” and this is one genre no one should miss out on.
What: Their latest dreamy single, “Billy”.
Why: Late night dancing in the kitchen was made for the light-hearted beats of “Billy”. With equal parts nostalgic sounds and new techniques, you’ll be hitting that repeat button a few times.
“’Billy’ is one of the last songs that we wrote while living in Amherst, MA (where we all went to college) before relocating to Austin. It harnesses that basement show energy that we had grown used to over 4 years, all buck & bite, taking a breath & holding it for a couple extra moments before pushing it out in a long loud wash. It’s about a character who all of us are at some point—young, afraid, doubtful—and hopefully serves as an upbeat reminder that none of us are as alone as we think we are.” – John Bergin, bassist for Calico Blue
