South Of France is the moniker of Denver-based songwriter and musician Jeff Cormack. When he’s not making infectious indie-pop music, Jeff is a full-time composer and head of record label Staycation … he’s even shared the stage with The Flaming Lips and Portugal. The Man.

Over the past year, he’s released a string of successful singles on the masses. His latest track, Sidewalk, might be the most infectious yet, and we couldn’t be more excited to be premiering it at The iM today. The song will be included on his upcoming long-player; more about that below:

“It’s about when someone catches your eye and you like that person’s vibe and you kinda imagine what they’re like, make that story up in your head and run with it,” Cormack explains. The track was such a stand out that it ended up defining the album of cheerful, lo-fi indie-rock anthems. “The goal is to deliver a mental vacation.”

Listen to the track in the embed, and be sure to hit up his socials for more leading up to the release. The new record, Remember That Cool Thing We Did, drops on February 26th. Not sure about you, but we can’t wait.
