Rosarita - Single

by Halloween Jack

Rosarita 03:36 video
Been stood upright since the break of day And my brow is wet with the heat of LA I’ve packed my possessions, my powder is dry I take the elevator and this guy says hi Where you heading son if your travels aren’t done It takes a son of a gun to leave the city of fun I saw the sunlight hit the junction out of LA The roof went up somewhere around Tijuana way La cerveza mas fina drinking down the highway See Rosarita, when I find you, you’ll blow me away I could’ve turned left and head for quieter times But I’ve got a senorita playing on my mind She’s made of bricks and mortar, sea and sand Gave the driver a dollar for a helping hand Stopped for gas on the federal highway I questioned my judgement when I checked where I stay So headed to Sandra’s for a beer and bite Then hitched right back to those LA lights
Living It Up 03:25
Buttoned down on the town, living it up Play around, come down, living it up Champagne, make it rain, living it up Jet plane, fast lane, living it up A highway jam, a strange new town Taking in the best, of a Californian sundown Miles and miles, of tarmac smiles Stretching out, as the horizon smiles A concrete oasis, in a bed of sand A vacay, holiday, that kind of land We’re punching hard, dressed to the nines When it comes to style, we hold the aces high


After playing their last gig in November 2016, Halloween Jack hit the snooze button. With the group reduced to just Adam Camm and Ian McEwan, the band woke again during the World Cup of 2018. In between watching group stage matches, and cooling off from the heat of the studio, they worked on what would become a love letter to Southern California, Steel & Shade. Very post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys, with hints of Roxy Music, Beatles, Bowie and Stones; whilst the sound of Halloween Jack had matured, it still retained some of the elements from the beginnings of the group.

This process began with the first true collaboration between Ian and Adam, resulting in this new sound. And this single, Rosarita with the b-side being an outtake from the Steel & Shade sessions.
