Why do we like this?

Caamp’s second-leading single off their upcoming album, Lavender Days, is the perfect little song to remind us that simpler summer days are coming soon.

“Apple Tree Blues” is a nostalgic track in signature Caamp style. It features folksy guitar and vocal harmonies with a slightly twangy touch of banjo, reminding us of the American countryside where the song seems to take place.

Singer Taylor Meier’s typical raspy holler takes on a more subdued melodic tone on this track to match the mood. In traditional blues style, the beat is fast-paced but not rushed, with an easy lilt, as a wood and rope playground swing in the breeze.

The lyrics are colorful and paint a picture reminiscent of summer break from school when there is nothing important to do and every day seems to last a year. Moments of anxiety shine through — Meier sings of “all the things you’d like to do but you can't, ‘cause you’re scared that you’re going to hell” — but are quickly eased. The song refrains “It’s good and well,” before fading out like a late July sunset.

Lavender Days comes out June 24th.
