"He’s written the score for new documentary Orange Sunshine which is about the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, a church formed in the early ’60s by a group of surfers/hippies in Orange County who wanted to change the world with psychedelic drugs and became the largest manufacturers of LSD in the United States. We’ve got the premiere of “Call My Name” from the soundtrack and it’s folky, soulful vibe, complete with the crackle of a dusty record, should work well in film."

"The movie is a compelling account of psychedelic discovery, distribution, and love - a true story from a fascinating moment in cultural history. Costa's accompanying soundtrack carries all the flavors of the movie's themes, along with his usual meticulous approach to craft." - Artist Direct
Artist Direct has shared Matt Costa's video for "Call My Name", the first single from his upcoming soundtrack to the film 'Orange Sunshine'. When speaking about the track Costa had this to say, "The single from the film is called “Call My Name.” it is a soul style song with some nylon string guitar accompaniment. The film is centered around a group called the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, their mission was to turn the world on to spiritual enlightenment through the use of LSD. Working closely with Timothy Leary, The Brotherhood made a type of LSD called Orange Sunshine. "Call my Name" is a classic sounding love song but untraditional in a sense that it is referencing enlightenment brought on with the LSD that was spread throughout the world. Its refrain “I need your love” is a call to the Brotherhood of Eternal Love. "

An Evening of Orange Sunshine & Matt Costa:
Each night features a screening of the acclaimed film Orange Sunshine followed by a headlining performance of Matt Costa & band featuring songs from the film as well as from his entire catalogue."

'Orange Sunshine' is a documentary about  "a church formed in the early ’60s by a group of surfers/hippies in Orange County who wanted to change the world with psychedelic drugs and became the largest manufacturers of LSD in the United States." The soundtrack is out 11/11 on Varese Sarabande.
Like certain other Southern California songwriters before him, Matt Costa has drifted through a strange and varied life in music, pushed toward pop music at a young age, selling hundreds of thousands of records and touring the world on the strong back of a simple, direct, and freewheeling debut. In the last few years, Costa took heavy stock in his work, and made unexpected turns into more progressive and thoughtful territories. This new direction has found him wandering; an outlier between the worlds of his own development as an artist, modern Orange County, his former label Brushfire Records, and cutting through the center of a now hidden and older California mystique.

Prolific at every turn, Matt has taken on the aura of a classic California drifter, spinning records in the midnight hours of his local Laguna Beach radio station, writing by day cataclysmically varied music, from fingerpicked John Fahey-like numbers, to cut up poetry, to howlers harkening back to an other-worldly sound; complete with a range of writing invoking a Kinksian sensibility, early rock & roll- Eric Burdon and the Animals, Van Morrison’s Them, and the guitar playing and arrangements of Brian Jones.

The last years have been eventful ones. Born and raised in Laguna Beach, Costa met some filmmakers hard at work on a documentary entitled Orange Sunshine detailing the story of the Brotherhood of Eternal love; a coastal church centered on psychedelics who became the largest manufacturers and distributors of LSD in the United States. Matt composed the entire score, beginning to tap into the underlying myths and secrets of his hometown. The music stands on its own and this year sees the release of the film, to rave reviews at its premier at SXSW, and showings at Festivals in Sedona, Maui, San Francisco, and in October, the illustrious British Film Institute in London, among others.

Autumn 2016 will welcome the release of the Orange Sunshine Film Soundtrack on Varèse Sarabande Records, complete with a unique companion tour combining screenings of the film with a special performance by Matt Costa and his band. This soundtrack is a signpost to a new LP already far underway. Orange Sunshine’s music hints at a songwriter cutting through to something greater and stranger; an artist arriving at a new incarnation. “The end picture is yet to be discovered,” says Costa.
