Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple has released a soulful new track, Florida. The song is part of his upcoming solo LP, Good Mood Fool, set for release on October 15 via Secretly Canadian. Florida and its two single predecessors, Katie and a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s Suffer, show Temple’s musical direction drifting apart from Here We Go Magic’s.
The song’s warm bassline is accompanied by some thought-provoking lyrics inspired by a friend who became addicted to drugs after her father’s death. Lines like “Florida, don’t let your daddy get you down/That good in you will make it easier somehow,” paired with Temple’s almost pleading vocals give the tune a sense of power that will inevitably hit some emotional chords.
