This song is what it sounds like in a daydream state to be with someone important in your life, driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway. Big Sur is located in Northern California and is an absolutely breathtaking experience for anyone. This song, which sonically takes influence from The Beach Boys and is reminiscent of “God Only Know’s What I’d Be Without You” and other songs from the album “Pet Sounds”.
