This is one of several acoustic tracks on Surfers Paradise
, where Cody adopts a surf-and-sun sound not that far removed from beach troubadour Jack Johnson. "I grew up playing the acoustic guitar and I decided I really wanted to go back to my roots on this album," the singer told Radio.com
. "I grew up listening to Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer so they definitely inspired a lot of the album too. There's a really mellow, acoustic sound to it."
Cody added that this is his favorite track on Surfers Paradise
: "It's an all-around beautiful record," he said of the song. "Acoustic guitar, ukulele and vocal and that's it. It's definitely an indicator to how I'm growing as an artist, how my music and sound is evolving."
