“California” is a prefect blend of simple instrumentation and simple vocal melodies. The song’s strongest quality is that there isn’t that much going on.

The Islander knows nothing about Deek Hoi, except for the fact that their name is clever and they are from Knoxville, but we are excited to see what the future holds for them.
