If Vince Gilligan wanted a more emotional punch for Breaking Bad’s final scene he should have substituted his song choice “Baby Blue,” with Calvin Love’s newest track, “Wild Blue,” a b-side from his debut 7” single, Cool. In the synth-heavy wistful track, Edmonton native Calvin Love chants the question throughout the song, “Are you ever coming back, my Wild Blue?” In this self-proclaimed “creepy-lounge” track, there are moments of raw emotion over a sprinting 80s pop beat that oddly compliments the effects-drenched guitar and synthesizer leads. Catch Calvin Love at CMJ next week at any of the venues listed below.
