Talk about a pure slice of guitar laced, horn draped, trop-pop bliss. Emily Zeck’s brand new single “Avocado Toast” is like a sonic collage of all the best things about the West Coast – images of the picture perfect beaches, delicious food, and a penchant for utterly carefree vibes. There’s an energy out here that can be harnessed through various forms of art and Zeck totally encapsulates it with a smile on her face. Her vocals are brimming with a joyous, carefree approach, the instrumental is uniquely West Coast structured while delivering wide-appealing pop touches, and the songwriting as a whole is sleek and smart while sounding totally natural.
Living on the West Coast, specifically in LA, is a true privilege. Nowhere else in the country can you be in a sprawling metropolis one hour, kicked back on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches the next. There’s a constant buzzing of positive energy out here that’s hard to describe but easy to feel once you’re in it. In the past week I’ve driven up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, eaten in a stunning open-air restaurant tucked away within the skyscrapers of downtown, and worked daily from my Hollywood office with a stunning view. Each instance was inspiring in its own way and I’ll continue to take advantage of that endless inspiration.
