Golden State: Love Song

Here I go with another piece of music I discovered while rewatching the television series Castle. In season 2 episode 12 "A Rose for Everafter", Castle runs into a former girlfriend played by Alyssa Milano. Beckett may be jealous but it turns out there's nothing to worry about; Castle and former part friends. The final scene, though, has former leaving the precinct and saying to Beckett, "He's all yours now". This telling moment in this on-going cat and mouse between the two protagonists of the show is nicely accompanied by this song.

Information about this indie pop rock group from Los Angeles seems to be sparse. I note that there is no official music video for this song so it turns out this clip from Castle itself is the best video with the best sound.

While Golden State is comprised of four guys, the composer James Grundler explained that he felt the song sounded better with a female voice, here Holly Conlan. Personally, I think the song is good and works quite well for this scene from Castle. Hats off to the producers as they do a great job of selecting music to best fit the development of our multi-season love story.

By the way, I have to mention that the first few times I listened to this song, I couldn't help thinking that the opening part is very reminiscent`of the song "1 2 3 4" by Feist. Or is it just me?
