Renato Medurecan, the creative mind behind Melodramatic Sinner, was having a fun time when writing the lively words to his song “Sour Beach.” Musically and thematically intertwined, this song is great for the summer and will having you smiling from ear to ear. Check out the song on Spotify or below:
“Sour Beach” starts off with a clearly defined guitar riff that is groovy and soothing, presenting a very relaxing vibe perfect for the beach. The drums are steady, and the vocals are smooth and enjoyable to listen to. Each verse is separated with harmonious guitar playing adding to the tropical setting the song has created. Overall, the production and delivery of the song is top-notch and feels effortless.
But without a doubt, the most memorable and bold aspect about “Sour Beach” is the lyrics, which tell a vivid story about a man’s sour experience at a beach. As the track title implies, the tale unfolds in a unique fashion where a straight man has an encounter with someone who he thought was a woman. But since it’s dark at this California beach, ordering a banana flavored ice cream proved to be a big mistake. This true experience must’ve been dreadful for Renato, but looking back, it has allowed for a great narrative to be told in a song.
Honestly, the colorful lyrics found here are a breath of fresh air from the usual contemporary tracks these days. A bit of humor goes a long way, and we look forward to hearing more misadventures from the mind behind Melodramatic Sinner. Hopefully the next experience isn’t too traumatizing!
