New York City guitarist, singer and songwriter Steve Conte is all set to release his first solo album in five years – ‘Bronx Cheer’, due 5th November via Wicked Cool Records. His new single “Dog Days of Summer” hits streaming sites today.
Of the latest single, Conte explains:
“It started with the title, which is a phrase I always liked, but when I was finished with it, I noticed that I wasn’t only writing about those awful hot days in August where you don’t want to do much of anything. I was also writing about getting older and watching the young upstarts, full of hope and goals, pushing hard to get somewhere – and seeing my kids zoom by me with all their energy. At this point, I feel like I can relax and don’t have much to prove, because my work is out there on records, on video, in the consciousness of the public – in my bubble, anyway. And the work speaks for itself.”
A bang of a drum announces this summery track, with some great guitar twang and attitude laced lyrics. Its a feel good track that has you reminiscing long hazy days of summers past. A bright, fuzzy sounding slice of American pop rock suitable for all.
