The video is set in the summer of 1996...

John Vincent III started making music in 2014, partly as a release but also because he simply felt compelled.

A true craftsman, his approach echoes those early Bon Iver cuts, while also supplying a pop edge, a clear willingness to communicate.

Taylor Swift showed her support for recent single 'Back To My Ways', with John Vincent III now digging into the past for something new.

New single 'Topanga Canyon' is out now, and the song picks apart nostalgia to find something honest and true.

Here's John...

It is an ode to romanticising the past, creating these nostalgic worlds, and trying to live inside them over and over through a grainy and imperfect representation.

A simple yet honest portrayal of love and spontaneity and how one day that is all we will have left to hold onto.

The video beautifully explores these themes - set in the summer of 1996, it's about youth, love, and memory.

Tune in now.
