We’ve all had those moments when we’ve sacrificed something in order to follow a dream. LA’s Coastal Clouds embodies the dreamer in all of us with new track, “Nothing To Hide,” as he delves into the hardships of living in LA when you’re broke, watching all of the lucky people go on with their lives. Though the track has a sunny demeanor, there’s a lot of truth and relatablity to this one.
“‘Nothing to Hide’ is mostly about my first few years in California. When I moved from Florida, I started interning in studios and working in restaurants to make ends meet and I was living out of my car in Venice for a few months. The irony is that I was parking my car by some of the most expensive streets to live or shop on and I didn’t have more than a few dollars to my name. Everyone in Venice seemed to recognize me at that point since I was always skating around grabbing coffees and lunches for the studio owners and the lyrics, “You might of seen me on an empty street when my cup was dry” and “Look at all those pretty things that I just can’t buy” are memories of those first few years in California which many people experience when they first move out here.”
