Worth the Watch: The Goldwyn Experiment’s ‘Sad Boy Summer’ starts as crestfallen as you’d think

When listening to the melody of the song, you wouldn’t think it matches the title. Well, you’re in for a rude awakening.

Life has a way of making you laugh if you find yourself funny. After being busted for public urination, a fugitive’s nine-month run comes to an end. As he sits in the back of a police car and exchanges snarky comments with the law, they see someone stuck on the road. Forced to stop—merely to avoid an issue back at the station—they get outsmarted by a twosome.

In the six-minute film, The Goldwyn Experiment’s song starts to play around the minute and twenty-three mark as the recently cuffed fugitive hops in the back of a convertible. On the run to Nevada’s city of sin, the rapping-singing rockers arrive at their destination. When listening to the melody of the song, you wouldn’t think it matches the title. Well, you’re in for a rude awakening.

‘Sad Boy Summer’ is from their new album titled ‘Avenue B’ after living in the Lower East Side of New York City. If you like what you hear, you should check out the eleven-track project.
