Not In California

by Joel David Weir

Enough 02:24


'Not In California' is the third single - second on Aldora Britain Records - from Joel David Weir's upcoming album Fault, to be released late summer 2021.

Continuing on themes of fracture, distance and uncertainty in relationships, places and in one's own heart, 'Not In California' draws on a western landscape of mystical Americana. The end result lies somewhere between dark Neil Young and sparse Bruce Springsteen. The track's evocative lyrics are accentuated perfectly by Nashville heartland rock artist David Newbould. David provides the haunting slide guitar and biting, yearning lead cutting through the fog.

The single is backed up by the new wave indie folk of 'Enough'.

For fans of Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and David Newbould.
