We’ve gotten a handful of singles from the forthcoming album by Stanley Brinks and the Wave Pictures, but this most recent is definitely my favorite, thus far. It has Stanley recounting or sharing on a love lost, but it’s told through the lens of someone who has been drinking heavily…or at least we assume so; that’s definitely something I think most of us can attest to having done in our own lives. All of this, of course, makes perfect sense, as Stanley’s a very literal songwriter, and together with the Wave Pictures, they’ve named their latest release Tequila Island; go give it a listen via Fika Recordings.
Two artists I’ve been writing about since we up and started this old blog are Stanley Brinks and Wave Pictures. Stanley’s done his own thing, worked with Freshcard…and always circles back it seems to work with the Wave Pictures. Together they write these pop songs that are playful, yet illustrated the musicianship of everyone involved, such as the title track from their new album, Tequila Island. It draws inspiration from folk influences, and then transports them to island lifestyles…maybe they got this all written down in Cabo? If Jimmy Buffet had a fraction of cool, he’d probably sound like this batch. Tequila Island is out on June 21st via Fika Recordings.
