Published Apr 23, 2015Los Angeles artist Chris Pope makes wonderfully breezy guitar pop under the name SOLAI, and his new video for single "Islands in the Sun" reflects those sounds perfectly.
The slow-burning track features plenty of shots of California at its most lush as a bearded pool cleaner scoops up leaves and longingly stares at an old photo. Perhaps distracted by his bikini-clad pool-mate, he drops his cell phone in the pool. Eventually, however, the mellow vibes get the best of him and he kicks back with a ciggie on a floatation device.
