Southern California trio The Captain’s Son are quickly making a name for themselves with their catchy blend of warm guitar melodies, laid back harmonizing vocals and upbeat drum rhythms. The group’s sound is reminiscent of early California surf pop with a garage rock vibe. Hailing from Springfield, Missouri, the band formed after Paige Byrd and Jarred Hayden started playing together as teens. William Hopkins later joined the band and after realizing they shared the same passion for music, it encouraged them to continue their journey together as The Captain’s Son.
On March 10th the band will release a self-titled EP, which is sure to catch the ears of those looking for a little sunshine in their rock and roll. The band finds themselves influenced by the culture, weather, and scenery around them, and all of that happens to be Southern California. Naturally, the album sounds laid back and care-free. Today Glide Magazine is premiering “For Free”, a fuzzed out psych rock tune laced with soul pop harmonies. It’s the kind of song that makes you want hit the beach, tune in, and drop out.
Guitarist Paige Byrd offers his own take on “For Free”, calling it “a lyrically light-hearted song about not getting caught up in senseless worries or peoples judgement. Feeling good about speaking your mind and taking time to be free, not materialistic or thinking only money can get you meaningful things in life.”
The Captain’s Son self titled EP is set for release March 10th.
