Every Thursday, I’m going to re-introduce you to a killer song from back in the day.
Back in the day may mean ten years ago, two years ago, or two days ago. It just depends on what I want to put y’all on for today.
If you aren’t familiar with the group, The Internet is an eclectic alternative R&B group that catapulted to fame primarily from being a part of the now defunct (or, not?) hip-hop collective Odd Future. The group is filled to the brim with beautiful minds and beautiful people with beautiful talent. They’ve come a long way over the years, being nominated for a Grammy last year for their last studio album Ego Death.
This song is forever staying in my “in-my-feelings” playlist. It completely exemplifies the ill-fated crushes that I had back in high school, and whenever I listen to it I always get this rush of child-like wonder and innocence.
I just adore the live instrumentation and how Syd and Tay’s voices just ride the jazzy yet ethereal instrumental like it’s a majestic unicorn. Every component of the song just comes together so perfectly. It’s a truly incredible song that I think everyone should listen to, so take a listen.
What do you think of the tune? Let me know in the comment section below love.
