Surf-indie outfit Gecko Club return with heated number 'Summer 2020'
Picture this track plays whilst you're lounging near a poolside with a cocktail in your hand - life is officially great again. Coming out of a time where the world was put on pause, Gecko Club sat down to write 'Summer 2020' in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Completely bittersweet and capturing perfectly how the globe felt during the peak of the pandemic, this summer-infused number resumes life and doesn't let sorrow bring it down. Equipped with a feel-good message that things will become easier again if we just give it time, this positive outfit are definitely musicians to look up to.
Highlighting their thoughts on the track, Gecko Club share, “We started writing this song in lockdown last year when we were all feeling pretty down about our plans for the year being cancelled. 2020 was supposed to be the year we set off on our first tour outside of the UK with our mates The Koalaz from Holland, as well as a strong list of festivals we were booked to play at. We kinda had a chat at the start of last year and with everything we had booked, we’re confident it was going to be a big one for Gecko. ‘Boomtown is a big part of our summer together and the fact we couldn't go this year was killer. We decided to focus the lyrics around the festival but really it represents something much greater than just the festival itself. We don’t really like writing depressing songs and we design our live sets to be a party, which is why the song sounds the way it does, you know, upbeat and easy to have a skank too. At face value it comes across as a happy feels song but listening deeper to the lyrics you realise, err well, we missed the summer and we’re cut up about it.”
