The lovely Lynx, a familiar face on the West Coast Festival scene has just released a video for her new song “Goodbye California”. Lynx released the video as an official entry in NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert contest, in which the winner will be flown to Washington DC to play a concert behind Bob Boilen’s desk as part of the Tiny Desk Concert series, which has featured artists such as Adele, Wilco, and John Legend in the past. The song itself is a beautiful ode to the West Coast with lyrics referring to her move from California up to the Pacific Northwest and shows a mature and soulful voice for Lynx, as well as some enchanting, almost twangy country-esque guitar playing, in which she is joined by Cheya MacKay. The video was shot in her latest hometown of Portland, Oregon in front of blazing fireplace and tastefully decorated living room. Watch the whole video and you will see a very candid and humorous Lynx beatboxing and making jokes toward the end.
