The song itself is a slacker’s lament about the often…

The Six Sevens – “San Francisco”

Santa Barbara slacker rock outfit The Six Sevens hit the nail on the head of the quarter life crisis in their single “San Francisco.” The quintet’s jangly guitar lines and bleary drum fills help paint the picture of parental disappointment and being young, broke, and restless.
