Nashville artist Young Summer has released a new song called "Make Waves," and it's such a delicious pop gem, but there's more lurking under the surface.
The new single is accompanied by a video which puts the strange, stargazy offering into focus, crystalizing the freedom and bliss of a love affair. It's got a Kacey Musgraves meets Lana Del Rey glow to it, as Young Summer previews her upcoming self-titled album, which is expected this fall.
“‘Make Waves’ is a love song about letting go of control and being OK with whatever happens next, something that can be incredibly hard to do," says Young Summer. "For a lot of us, it can be rare that we let ourselves be fully vulnerable but when we do it’s euphoric. The production is meant to be hypnotic and evoke the feeling of letting go and it keeps you there as each section gets increasingly dreamy."
She adds: "The song is like a spell being cast. ‘Make Waves’ is evidence that I’ve, at least once, truly let go and the song is my trail of breadcrumbs, it can help guide me back when I need it.”
