For most people, driving past endless truck stops and dusty, sun-drenched freeway towns doesn’t really inspire much creativity. In fact, such uneventful treks can tend to be pretty boring for everyone involved. This isn’t the case for Wallpaper., as Ricky Reed checked in from the road somewhere in Nevada during Wallpaper.’s current tour with an impromptu car rehearsal of his newest creation, “Indian Summer”.
The song, a singalong, synthed-out road trip jam, captures the feeling of being stuck on the road for hours on end, driving in oppressively hot Autumn conditions towards a more enjoyable destination.
Ricky even says so himself, introducing the video with these words:
“Touring is hard! While we’re off driving through random parts of Nevada, the SF Bay Area is having an Indian Summer and the Giants win the World Series! Wish we were home today celebrating with yall! So this desert driving tour rehearsal of our new song also titled “Indian Summer” is a tribute to our favorite place to be when its hot in Autumn.
