Exciting news, today we have a free download for all our readers. Daylight Saving Time has ended, the days are growing shorter, and we’re all yearning for summer again. Ross and the Wrongens are a UK quintet with more than a hint of 60’s Brit pop to their sound, and we’ve got the free download of their latest single for all our readers. Summer sun aims to bring a little warmth back to the cold days and immediately conjures comparisons with The Kinks and The Monkees, its rollocking pub-piano melody and sugary vocals whipping the listener into a blissful and hazy summer smile-fest. As the track continues, the chug-a-long verses give way to a Weezer-esque guitar and banjo solo, reminiscent of that band’s simpler tracks such as ‘Island In The Sun’. It’s not ground-breaking, it’s not envelope-pushing, but it’s lovely sweet summery indie pop, and for that The Wrongens should be proud of doing something very right.
