|Yesterday, alt-pop band THE DRIVER ERA released their brand new single, “Malibu” (click HERE ). Laced in escapism, brothers Rocky and Ross Lynch wrote the song while daydreaming about personal experiences. “‘Malibu’ is about reminiscing on experiences in the best locations,” the band stated. “It’s about getting away. It’s the spontaneous trip you take with someone — maybe you knew them before, or maybe you’re meeting them for the first time.“|
