The Sunshine State is a new chapter in the story of well-acclaimed songwriter Skyler Stonestreet, who’s already penned for the likes of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa, as she explores a new dreamy soundscape that makes you feel like you’re consistently basking in the Californian sun. Her debut for this project, Cliff Drive, came out in late 2020 that served as the perfect introduction to this new world she’s crafting with it feeling like a combination of Stevie Nicks and Phoebe Bridgers and today she’s expanding the lore of this world even further within the A24 soundtrack ready track Things Changed.
It’s a scintillating adolescent ode that takes you on a journey, it takes you back to moments in your life that helped define who you are today, showing the twists and turns you took, the other roads you could’ve gone down and the roads you left long behind you. The jangled guitar melodies, twinkling production and ethereal vocal radiate a joyous naive energy that perfectly reflects those moments of reckless abandonment we experience in our youth. The perfect track to make you feel like the main character in your own coming of age movie.
