Digital Alkemist, real name Costantinos "Costas" Chrysogelos, teamed with female vocalist Chara Kotsali in Athens, Greece, to record "California Sun".
The song's downtempo electronic sound interprets the reactions of one who visits sunny Los Angeles and finds their head full of noise.
According to the lyrics, L.A. is a city full of limos, mansions and lies, but where "the California sun will always shine".
Brian Eno meets Michelle Phillips at My Big Fat Greek Wedding at Venice Beach. Clear enough?
One of the great new songs about California, the mood is dark, mellow and cynically insightful --- yet still willing to work on a tan.
Eclectically bipolar, but one of the hippest songs about California.
I totally dig this Greek musical interpretation of Southern California from Digital Alkemist.
