The ongoing Mazzy Star comeback continues with this atmospheric video (posted below) for one of Seasons Of Your Day’s standout tracks, “California.” Although it’s been 17 years since the last Mazzy Star album, in recent interviews David Roback said that him and Hope Sandoval never stopped making music, they just stopped releasing it.
“We were always recording and writing,” Roback tock The Guardian. “We just didn’t release any of it publicly.”
Which almost makes Mazzy Star the J.D. Salinger of indie rock.
“I don’t think it’s unusual at all,” Sandoval said in the same interview. “I don’t think we were really in the mood to release music.”
Seasons Of Your Day is the group’s fourth album.
“Maybe, for musicians, it’s common to release things more frequently than we do,” Roback said. “[We’re] like other types of artist. They make their sculpture or painting, they write books or poems, and whether they have an exhibition is almost irrelevant.”
