Kings favorite Nate Merchant drops his 4th single this year Staying In California. Since his first release the Los Angeles indie artist has been stuck in the 80’s and doesn’t plan on moving from the neon era. It’s fine with me, the Los Angeles producer and songwriter does a good job.
The new track comes off his upcoming, debut EP produced with iconic bassist of John Taylor of Duran Duran.
It’s also his 4th single that reached #1 on the Hype Machine Chart. The previous tracks like Don’t Feel Like Dancing landed on Spotifys Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Pop. Ones To Watch, Billboard, and Sirius XM are also on board the Nate train. Stream it on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.

“My best friend lost seven friends and family members during our freshman year of college, and I’ll never forget how that affected her. I was there for her then, and we moved through it. Then, she was there for me in 2019 when I was finally able to escape a very toxic relationship that left me with the scars of panic attacks and led me to cut my bangs in protest of it all. The fact of the matter is time heals all, and I know she’ll be there for more celebrations and bumps in the road, and I’ll always just be happy to be here with her now.”
