Song of the Day: Diego Garcia – You Were Never There

Toronto – Elefant was one of those bands that came up around the same time as The Killers, The Strokes, The Bravery, etc. Despite having a fairly solid debut record in Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid, this New York band did not see their careers elevated to the heights that their counterparts did. I quite liked Elefant, and I think I saw them at Lee’s Palace or something at one point. The song Misfit was really good.

Anyways, the band broke up but lead singer Diego Garcia has since launched his solo career. His first track is called “You Were Never There” and has this really chilled, laid back vibe that makes me think of the days in the ’70s where I was hanging out by an outdoor pool during sunset in the hills of Hollywood. There would be palm trees everywhere, mountains of cocaine and everyone had bucket hats and white suits. That probably wasn’t me. Either way, that’s the feeling I get from this track, which is off his debut album – Laura. It was released a few weeks ago. Check it out on itunes.
