Drew Citron – “Summertime”
Drew Citron’s most recent project is Public Practice, the jittery Brooklyn band who put out their debut album a couple months back. The New York mainstay is also one-half of the indie pop band Beverly. Today, she’s announcing her debut solo album, Free Now, which was written following her breakup with ex-Beverly bandmate Scott Rosenthal. Its lead single, “Summertime,” is dreamy and languishing, a painful shimmer about not wanting to let yourself hurt. “I don’t want to feel you say goodbye,” Citron sings in the chorus. “No, I never want to give my heart to someone’s goodbye.”
“A nostalgic song about summer feels more prescient than ever,” Citron wrote in a statement. “Missing summer, loving it, living for late afternoon beach beers, god I’m missing summer already and it’s barely started. This is a sweet little song about new love in summer, not wanting it to end, wanting to hold on to that feeling.”
