Journeyman Bolinas found his way from Kansas, to Seattle, to LA, with lots of musical gusto and catastrophic life experience in tow. You can hear the amalgamation of these events in latest single, “U.L.B” – the mid-tempo slog (in a good way!) sounds like the work of a weathered musician, smashing together angular, midwestern-emo chords into a dream-pop shell. “U.L.B” is short for “unnecessary last beer” and finds songwriter Chris Thomas reminiscing about shedding the self-destructive lifestyle after a few too many nights with a few too many beers.

You can find “U.L.B” on Spotify too.
