In the summer of 2018 Frej went to California to visit his cousin and her husband, Chris. The Californian filmmaker told Frej the story of his life and his struggle to get into the Hollywood film industry - not a walk in the park, for sure. Back in Sweden Frej and the rest of SKYBAR recorded Come to California, a song heavily influenced by Chris’ story. When Chris heard the song, not knowing that it was inspired by him, he was deeply touched by the song, and proposed that the band flew in to Los Angeles to record a music video. Coincidentally Chris got to play the main character of himself (Jerry) in this epic video recorded in the Anza Borrego dessert, near Palm Springs.
SKYBAR, a retrofuturistic pop band from Gothenburg, Sweden, just released their first EP On The Rocks - out now on Spotify! Come to California is the opening track. https://open.spotify.com/artist/6jWoEIxPumgp330V5S7tMH?si=dNfga-PWTfSBpTfNxjUIXA
