Releasing today, Justin Levinson's "I'll Make It In Hollywood" is a beach-y, sugary '60s pop tune. Heavily influenced by The Beatles and Beach Boys, it's a playful number -- though written with a subtle cynical undertone, over-exaggerating the ease of rising to stardom and retiring in Malibu.
"I really wanted to release a bright/ beachy summery track at the beginning of the year," Justin explains. "Like the previous record, we kept a lot of the '60s pop inspired sound... big vocal arrangements, wurly and mellotron. Though the song may appear to be about a fella who is quite confident he's going to hit the big time in Hollywood, there is actually a bit of a subtle cynical undertone. I tried to tap into some of the hardship creatives go through in a lighthearted manner."

Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable.
