mp3: "Ice Cream and Sunscreen" - Martha

Summer always feels slow to arrive and like its seasonal inspiration, "Ice Cream and Sunscreen" begins with a discernible subtlety. A promise of sunshine and cloudless skies, make the wait all worth it  "I was watching the skin peeling off your sunburned shoulders...I know you only melt in the middle like ice cream and sunscreen/like blisters in the pit of my heart." And much like when summer marks its glorious arrival and shakes everything up, the remaining members of Martha join in for an electric finale as glorious those "fireworks to light your July skies." The single is from Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart out in July.
