NEW MUSIC: Loco Tranquilo – Golden Flower

Here’s a really nice upbeat slice of indie folk-rock from San Francisco artist Loco Tranquilo (Julian Gervasi). Surf guitars wobble, shimmer and jangle over the bubbly punch of the rhythm section. Gervasi adds the psychedelic folk vibe with a vocal style reminiscent of Devendra Banhart – that free-spirited, trippy, grinning-at-the-sun kind of sound.

Recorded at Coyote Hearing Studios in collaboration with local producer Mackenzie Bunch (French Cassettes and Tino Drima) – it comes from his upcoming concept album being released later this year through eclectic, post-genre label Text Me Records.

Loco Tranquilo’s soft and dreamy melodies were apparently inspired by nights spent on top of coloured mountains making songs about the stars, being inspired by the beauty of nature, and meeting fellow musicians and artists on a bohemian journey towards California.
