Whether it's a friend or a partner; you know when the time comes, you're done with it. It's like a record, too -- you know when you're done with it."
'The Season' leads off 'Mobile Chateau,' on which Costa continues to explore mixing reverb and classic '60s pop arrangements that fans of the Beach Boys and the Byrds would surely appreciate, all the while weaving in his own, modern-day narratives.

"That one always felt right to me for the beginning, because it falls into the sound," he explains." It was the first song that I had written in that vein. I'd written one song before that, which was 'The Secret,' but the 'The Season' embodied this record."
'Mobile Chateau' is out Sept. 21 on Brushfire Records. Check out 'The Season' and the album cover below.
