Northern Youth is the solo recording project of (newly) Long Beach, CA based Luke Messimer. The music is sincere, it’s honest…and it’s pretty damn good. “Los Angeles” could be described as your typical folk-pop dalliance, with a sparse and touching arrangement that has an undercurrent of emotion pushing the track, driving it forward. Messimer’s vocals are high and poignant, and when he tells “Los Angeles” it’s alright in his eyes he sounds like he means it.
This track could easily find a home in a myriad of indie films, but if you’re smart it’ll find one in your playlist first.
