Professional lyricists, Jill and Kate are two of the most underrated singer-songwriters in the industry. The female duo are as humble as they are talented, and continue to release tunes that tug at our heartstrings, including their song “Nashville,” one of our favorites. Today, their new track “Craving California” made its debut.
For those who may not know, the songstresses use to live in California, but the track goes beyond craving the state and its sunshine. The two lament about missing a past relationship, and how all the spots in California remind them of that time in their lives. It’s interesting how we can all relate to a place reminding us of a person or an experience that we once had.
“I’m craving California and I don’t know why / Maybe I miss seeing you in that light / Even on the day that we said goodbye / There were blue skies / And Tennessee just ain’t the same / There’s no ocean here, just a lot of rain / And a lonely street called Broadway / Where the sad songs are playing all day / And I’m craving California / I’m craving California.”
Just before its release, Jill and Kate took to Instagram to share this sentiment under a picture of the cover art for the new single: “Songs take us back. Isn’t it funny how a place can cause you to miss someone because you have so many memories with them? The person and the place are tied together. Our new song, ‘Craving California,’ is a true story about leaving someone in California and feeling very far away.” The duo creates songs that connect us all, and that’s what makes them such powerful songwriters.
