Summer Salt wants listeners to “Take Carra Me”


Texas-based indie rock band Summer Salt’s latest single “Take Carra Me” combines the retro sounds of summer with contemporary production to create an easy, breezy summer anthem. An electronic-sounding drum opens the song before well-rounded instrumentation fills in the empty space, including soft percussion, slick guitar and vocal layering. 

Summer Salt’s influences are clear throughout the song, with “do-do-do-dooo-do’s” filling the pre- and post-chorus that sound and feel like any given Beach Boys harmonization. The sunny guitar strumming leads listeners through the song as lead singer Matthew Terry sings, “It’s wild that I have even got this far / When it’s hard as hell to dream”. Clocking in at just over the three minute mark, the single moves along quickly without feeling rushed — which could perhaps be an intentional callback to the days of the average song length being just over two and a half minutes, circa 1960. As the cover art for the single suggests — in its sunwashed, vintage postcard glory — Summer Salt set out to craft an easy summer jam, and “Take Carra Me” accomplishes just that. 

You can listen to “Take Carra Me” on platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.
