Southern California-based duo Wheeland Brothers have made a name for themselves in the beach rock scene, opening for groups like 311, The Wailers, Slightly Stoopid and more in their exciting career. Earlier this year, the band took the opportunity to perform at the balcony of the Tree House for an intimate acoustic performance. Bringing out their beloved 2013 single “Run River Run,” from the Muchos Mahalos album, the band thoroughly impressed with the stripped-down session.“The more we’ve performed ‘Run River Run,’ it’s become a song that moves our imagination,” said Travis Wheeland to L4LM. “We wanted to create a version of the song that captures that energy, and maybe inspire a few people to wonder what’s out beyond their horizon. So we got a few friends and neighbors together on my balcony in San Clemente, California and filmed a live take of the song.”The beautiful number translates idealistically to the intimacy of the setting, and we’re honored to premiere the footage. Check out the Wheeland Brothers’ acoustic “Run River Run,” below.Wheeland tells us more about the lovely tune. “On a hot California summer day I set up a camping tent at the water’s edge at Crystal Cove State Beach. I was sitting alone with my guitar—I tend to make up songs to myself to think through whatever’s going on in my life. Catalina Island was on the horizon as I wrote ‘Run River Run.’ I was remembering the river that runs through the Kalalau Valley in Hawaii and straight into the ocean. You can be sunburned and salt encrusted, but the moment you sink into that river and let the cool glassy water pour over your face, it refreshes you to your core. When a moment stuns you and you see yourself—when you really arrive, like snapping out of the day-to-day hypnosis—you’ve got to pause and make a conscious decision to remember those moments. That river, the ‘Kalalau Stream’ is flowing as you read this. Heck you can look it up on Google Maps right now if you want. It’s a reminder that there’s magic happening in this world. It keeps carrying us to the ocean; it keeps us coming back, looking for magic.”This exciting group will be making waves all summer long! For more on the group, head to their official website.
