Under A Cloud

Album: Sweetheart of the Sun (2011)


  • Running throughout the Bangles fifth album, Sweetheart of the Sun, is a theme of paradise lost in California. This song is about the reality that lies beneath the surface of the Sunshine State. Guitarist/vocalist Susanna Hoffs told MusicRadar.com: "It's kind of the real deal about LA, that despite the shiny exterior and sunshine, people are just as depressed here as they are anywhere. I had seen an ad on TV for an antidepressant, one where this woman is holding an umbrella even though it's all sunny outside. The image really stuck with me."
