Marana Blake is an indie singer-songwriter, born in Chicago “California Waves” is her newest single. The song talks about inner indecisiveness and trying to get out of that realm. The song blends indie-pop with a little early 2000’s pop-rock to bring you a firey nostalgia vibe. Her light vocals definitely adds a needed element to the song creating a chill vibe surrounded by a serious issue.
She said this about the track, “I wrote it to be versatile and relatable, able to conform to the difficult situation that the listener faces. It can be about mental health, relating to the inner indecisiveness and fighting that goes on between the head and heart. Things may be smooth one moment and then rough the next- the opposite emotions come in “waves.” It also relates to relationships that are come-and-go, changing at a moments notice. The overall vibe evokes a familiar nostalgic sadness.”
At a young age, she ventured down into the Southwest, where she was heavily influenced by the simple and laidback lifestyle.
