"What I got on? Hard denim and my same Vans."

Dom Kennedy is a summer necessity. He just sounds the way it feels to be in Los Angeles. Granted, in this one, he mentions being in Midtown, Manhattan. Oof, nothing relaxing about that place.

Dom is no stranger to the nostalgic, summer driving song. Just listen to "Still Me" from three years ago, in which every bar was a reference to the past. Nevertheless, he is very good in that lane, plus he can put together one hell of a mixtape. Let's see what happens on Get Home Safely, which will hopefully arrive before the end of this summer (though the season will continue throughout the year and forever in his hometown). Maybe we'll find out more about Erica on the supposed sequel. Listen below.
