This is the perfect tune for the weekend with a crazy good, upbeat vibe packed full of energy and love. You’ll be singing along in no time…
It is what we all want deep down inside, someone to love us no matter what, and of course it helps if they are shouting it from the hilltops, right?
I think so.
What strikes me about this song is the lyrics hint of infatuation, newness, and connectedness. But the idea behind Josh Steven’s new album, Story of Summer, is more of a roller coaster ride than staying in love euphoria. He has put together the songs that will describe a romance with a fictional character “Anna”.
“It’s a first person perspective to the rise and fall of a relationship. The setting of this love story takes place in the sunny beach city of Los Angeles, California. It follows Josh through different stages of extreme euphoria to the darkest lows of meaningless one-night stands…”
I am intrigued by the idea behind this album, as well as the first track, “Hill Top”, he has sent out into the world. It is a brilliant shining song and the trumpet addition (around 3:30) from Spencer Ludwig, of Capital Cities, adds an additional sparkle that keeps the song fresh and hip. The EP, Story of Summer features guest appearances from Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities, Drew Hester of Foo Fighters, Matt Mcjunkin of A Perfect Circle & Pusifer and Thurz of Red Bull Sound Select.
