Northern New Jersey’s Garage-Punk duo Melissa & Paul have returned with a new single titled “Summer,” and it currently owns the prominent SIMGE title of “Best Song About The Dog Days To Be Released In Winter”…not the catchiest of classifications, unlike this tune.
This three-and-a-half minute number of the reverberant Bluesified-kind is a sexy, sweat-drenched stroll through a penniless existence on the road for pair of independent artists chasing down their dreams one mile-marker at a time.
“Summer” was recorded in January at the Burn Room in Oak Ridge, NJ and will not be included upon Melissa & Paul’s forthcoming cassette tape release, which is due out in April. Until it drops the pair will be playing a series of shows outside of New Jersey save for one date, a scheduled February 15th performance at Asbury Lanes with Mister Snake and more to be announced. Prepare yourself for that show by grabbing “Summer” below:
