sunshine

by bobby blue

My new album, the retro-electro pop perfect, 'sunshine' is uplifting, and melodic. Recorded with DFA Records engineer, Abe Seiferth, we have woven together influences of 1960s pop and modern electronic music, like Erasure, and The Pet Shop Boys. The glitchy electro-country song, 'go', and the cover of Bread's 1971 hit, 'if', are sadder moments, but the happy synth title track, 'he loves me', and 'feel good' hold the spirit of the album as they celebrate the more fun, and happier times of life. I wrote most of these songs in my mother's home country, Costa Rica, which adds a slight tropical feel to the music, like in 'blue island', and 'pura vida'.
