Song of the Day #4,409: ‘Rebel Sun’ – Beach Weather

Beach Weather was a short-lived project by singer-songwriter Nick Santino, who has also helmed the band A Rocket to the Moon and performed as a solo act.

Santino joined Austin Scates and Reeve Powers to form Beach Weather in 2015. The Massachusetts-based outfit released three well-liked EPs then called it quits in 2017 so the members could pursue solo projects.

Beach Weather touches on a number of different musical styles across their EPs. This one sounds to me a lot like the alternative pop I listed to in the early 90s.

[Verse 1]
Let me tell you a story about the queen of Brooklyn
Lost her to Bodega lights and sounds
But in her heart she’s broken
Oh oh oh

[Verse 2]
Across the boulevard, she hears a hallelujah
Cursing at the sky at patron saints
But in her heart she’s taken

[Pre-Chorus]
By the wind and then she went with the gypsy soul
Firing away like a cannonball again

[Chorus]
Baby you’re a wild one, I can feel it now
An angel with a shotgun, shoot me down
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Hey hey hey

[Verse 3]
I used to be in love with the queen of Brooklyn
Wrap me in a velvet ecstasy
But the city could never keep her

[Pre-Chorus]
And she left me like the wind with the gypsy soul
Firing away like a cannonball again

[Chorus]
Baby you’re a wild one, I can feel it now
An angel with a shotgun, shoot me down
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Hey hey hey

[Bridge]
Lost in a dream, a silver liberty
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Your soul runs free
It’s all you ever need

[Chorus]
Baby you’re a wild one, I can feel it now
An angel with a shotgun, shoot me down
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Hey hey hey

Baby you’re a wild one, I can feel it now
An angel with a shotgun, shoot me down
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Hey hey hey

[Bridge 2]
Ooh ooh ooooh
Hey hey hey
Ooh ooh ooooh

[Outro]
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away
Rebel, you’re the sun never burning away

    Austin Scates and Reeve Powers didn’t choose Austin Powers as a band name? Come on! That’s a layup!
