The track is is the first release from her forthcoming album California & Other Stories.
On her scathing new release which she calls a “gentle reminder of why it might not be the best idea to date a songwriter”, Megan Slankhard holds nothing back as she tells an ex what she thinks of him following the end of a bad relationship.
Throughout ‘California’, the artist’s vocal delivery feels as sincere and uncompromising as the lyrics, as every word on the track feels loaded and laced in catharsis. Musically, the track has a really engaging and energetic feel to it, with the relief and sense of a weight being lifted with the closure of the relationship permeating throughout the whole sound. ‘California’ is an anthem for anyone who has come out of a toxic relationship better on the other side, and serves as a defiant and empowering piece of work that continues to showcase the charisma and poise that Megan holds as an artist.
