There are places that sound much louder and more colorful than others …
How it sounds
Like Indie rock mixed with the psychedelia of the ’60s.
With the sound of a Pacific Ocean wave crashing on a California beach.
Like a gentle aura caressing our ears and brings with it the aroma of the… cigarette that the company has “popped” next to it.
It is essentially a mix of indie, surf, and Psychedelic rock combined with a very special sound.
Why listen to it
Because it is very summery, harmless, and melodic.
And because it looks like a summer Sunday afternoon.
Because our life is not like a summer Sunday afternoon.
Excessively melancholy and lost in its psychedelic melodies.
Where we meet it
USA, California, and more specifically in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Davis
When did it start
In the mid-1980s
Who are the pioneers
However, the name came out a year later by Michael Quercio of The Three O’Clock.
The name came when he collaborated with his close friend Lina Sedillo bassist of the local punk band Peer Group who wore a dress with a paisley design *.
Her bass also had the phrase: “Words from the paisley underground”.
This is how the name of the genre was born.
You have to listen
Days of glory
In the mid-1980s, mainly with the success of The Bangles, but also after the mid-1970s, there was a resurgence of the movement.

Many bands have given up the term and some others have followed more pop tracks.
What is it confused with

How do you describe it to an irrelevant
Something Californian psychedelic for sunburned stoned surfers.
