Trails and Ways: “Nunca”

Some time ago Trails and Ways did a beautiful re-imagining of M83’s “Midnight City”. It was a kind of latin take on the track. The two from Oakland, CA have their own material at hand also and what material it is. “Nunca” is a fun bossa nova esque track that is just perfect for the dream pop summer sound that seems to be the one for 2012. 

Sunny happy pop, what else do you need? Nothing right, so go and download “Nunca” and the Trilingual (Singles) EP right here.
