The kaleidoscopic video mirrors the instantly addictive track, evoking the feelings of long hot summer days and new love. Cali’ follows on from previous singles ‘All I Want’‘Charm Assault’ and ‘Home Is A Feeling’, and is the latest taste of the band’s critically acclaimed album Weather Diaries’, which was released in June by Wichita Recordings.

The band also also unveiled Luke Abott’s haunting remix of the album highlight, bringing electronic influences and a dream -like, disembodied element to the song’s hazy memories, Abbot has created a track that flips the original track into a whole new sonic space.  – Listen to the re-work of ‘Cali’  HERE





Ypsigrock Review – 19th August

“Ride feel like a rush of euphoric fresh air. Using the opportunity to air a handful of tracks from their newest full-length ‘Weather Diaries’ – their first in over two decades – the likes of ‘Lannoy Point’ and ‘Charm Assault’ sound massive, as they reverberate around the castle’s walls. Sounding lean but intense, their newer tracks sit perfectly next to their early predecessors – ‘Leave Them All Behind’ and ‘Drive Blind’ in amongst the ranks – which still manage to provide a potent punch.

Having performed at Glastonbury at the start of a busy summer of live activity, Ride played Manchester International Festival, Latitude, a sensational headline performance at Green Man Festival followed by a flying visit to Tokyo at the weekend.
