In a time when my friends are graduating, moving away, and starting their lives, I remain a slave to the American college system.  What's a better way to describe this period that an upbeat ode to missed friends?  That's exactly what the song "Toyohashi" touches upon, and to the tune of a friendly surf pop ballad.  The track is set to be released as a side-A to a 7" on July 31st by the Cleveland group Summerays, which is a brainchild of the 22-year-old Luke Teeters.  Whenever I hear something beachy or surfy like this, my mind automatically relates it to Beach Fossils, which wouldn't be too distant of a comparison.  The main difference is that "Toyohashi" is very clean and twangy, separating itself from the garage style that Beach Fossils tends to incorporate.  I've posted it below to stream, and if you like it be sure to check out the studio's page to preorder it.  Bandcamp also has some past releases that you can check out!
