A hazy and summery, jangly and guitar-driven vibe
Cal in Red is an indie pop/rock project started by brothers Connor and Kendall Wright (Grand Rapids, MI).
The band is named after their youngest brother Cal, who at one point had a particular fascination with red t-shirts. The band formed in the summer of 2019. The music was hazy and summery, jangly and guitar-driven. The yearning, hopeful tones of these early sessions morphed into an indie-pop congruence riddled with nostalgia, lamenting the loss of past summers and desperately grabbing at simpler, youthful times.
Cal in Red effortlessly slides vocals with guitar and synths to create a summery casualness. Their music is the soundtrack to a road trip: the top spot on a playlist also featuring Beach House and Tame Impala.
