B3SCI is pleased to premiere, “Nothing to Hide”, the debut track online of L.A.’s Coastal Clouds. The track’s West Coast sound composed of sunny guitar arpeggios, a spare lo-fi rhythm track, and a sweet bit of great melodic writing belies (and sadly, also reality too for many in California) the song’s lyrical impetus. Coastal Clouds’ Roberto said about the track, “The song, “Nothing to Hide” is mostly about my first few years in California. When I moved from Florida, I started interning in studios and working in restaurants to make ends meet and I was living out of my car in Venice for a few months.” He continues, “The irony is that I was parking my car by some of the most expensive streets to live or shop on and I didn’t have more than a few dollars to my name. Everyone in Venice seemed to recognize me at that point since I was always skating around grabbing coffees and lunches for the studio owners and the lyrics “ You might of seen me on an empty street when my cup was dry “ and “ Look at all those pretty things that I just can’t buy” are memories of those first few years in California which many people experience when they first move out here”
We love “Nothing to Hide” and we’re stoked to stream the track’s premiere below.
