‘Big Sur’ sees the band explore lyrical themes of escape and loneliness through a vintage rock groove. Loaded with a soaring, distorted organ intro which leads into a doo-wop inspired vocal melody and piercing fuzz guitar solo, the track displays influence from the likes of Roy Orbison, Bruce Springsteen, The Seeds, The Beach Boys and White Album era Beatles while remaining very much Children of the State’s now distinctive sound.

Speaking on the track, the band explain: “Big Sur was born out of a lot of grey days on an industrial estate in Doncaster wanting to be at the beach. We were listening to a lot of Dick Dale and Beach Boys at the time and wanted to capture that 60s surf sound but bring it into 2020., but struggled to capture the vibe in Sheffield. We figured we’d get closer to the coast, so got in touch with Ian Skelly from The Coral, and spent a few days there creating it.”
