DC Gore has dropped his new solo single “California"

DC Gore has dropped his new solo single “California.” The accompanying video was directed by David J East (Foals, The Japanese House), and shot in the industrial heartlands of the Thames Estuary. “California” was co-produced by DC Gore and Duncan Tootill with additional production by Tom Gillieron. The track was mixed by Alexis Smith (Speedy Wunderground).

Since the dissolution of south London trio Little Cub, Gore has remodelled & reimagined the band’s electronic synth-pop to incorporate additional acoustic instrumentation, making for a more textured and temperate sound. “California” sees Gore conjure up what he describes as “a very English type of failure,” with our lead “flagging proud in sweaty Speedos…Byron-esque on Venice Beach.” It’s a self-lacerating, starkly rendered snapshot of an Englishman abroad, distilled within an expansive art-pop palette—California dreaming indeed.
