Linus Young - Fun in the Sun

Posted about 2 years ago
Producer:
Malay
Album:
Category 5

Update: The Dannie Fite and Joe Dietsch-directed visuals for Linus Young’s Fun in the Sun single have been added.

On their first Booth feature, Island Def Jam duo Linus Young took a road trip to the City of Sin, presumably to indulge in a little hard drinking and gambling. The L.A. natives must have gotten the thirst for vice out of their systems, because the follow-up sees them enjoying some good, clean Fun in the Sun. The setting may be different, but this joint has the same smoky, atmospheric sound as its predecessor. A driving backbeat, delayed guitars and subtle keys from Malay accompany Joseph Walker and Iris Belson as they show off their haunting vocal harmonies. Fun in the Sun appears on the twosome’s latest full-length, Category 5, out now.
