Today, Nashville’s own quirky duo, Okey Dokey, released another track from their upcoming collaboration album, Curio Cabinet I. The psych pop twosome, formed by visual artist Aaron Martin and guitarist Jonny Fisher, will release the ten track LP later this year.
Until then, we can enjoy their dreamy new single, “Edge of America,” featuring Harpooner aka Scott Schmadeke. Written by Schmadeke, the song takes the listener on a journey through a sleepy beach town where “love’s in the air,” and seemingly everyone moves through their peaceful lives at their own easygoing pace.
“‘The Edge of America’ is the nickname for Folly Beach, SC. It’s a tiny island where the cars drive 15 mph, and the bicycles cruise by even slower. Being right outside Charleston, where there is Chico Feo’s shark tacos and the Atlantic Ocean’s bathtub water, you can take it slow. This is my Kokomo (insert Beach Boys comic),” says Schmadeke.
Schmadeke’s lyrics combined with Okey Dokey’s psychedelic, groovy melodies paint the perfect picture of an idyllic beachside life and create the ultimate laidback summer track. Listen to “Edge Of America” below.
