The California Cure churn out a smoked out and vibey wavelength driven by 90’s inspired guitar lines with a technical yet stylistic rhythm section, pulled together by a Bob Ross worthy palette on keys and a pulling puppeteer on the rarely found pedal steel, surging into and out of sight like flashes in a stormy night.


Well I wrote off my friends
And I spent my gold
And I sold all them things
That I once used to own
Then that hurricane
Caved in my walls
And I laid still and cried, Lord
Have mercy on my soul

On a bright sunny day
I wrote a song
I took a little dip
Before I coloured in the sun
Then that mighty wave
Took a great fall
I swam for my life, Lord
Have mercy on my soul

I won’t predict the weather
And I wish upon all the stars you’re wishing upon too
When I grow up and I’ll know better
‘Til then I’ll keep hymning at that
Blood Red Moon

Well have we met before?
Is this by good fate?
That I’m falling even more in love
Each and everyday
From my fall from grace
The dust and the fog
Left me in a daze, Lord
Have mercy on my soul

I won’t predict your future
And I can jive to all the rhymes you’re striding along to
Compromise or surrender
Til then I’ll just keep singing at that
Blood Red Moon
