This track has its foot in two camps, where it could be stripped back to its bare acoustic bones or hammed up to a thicc electronic edit. I'm impressed you've hit that middle ground so flawlessly.

Love that you've resisted any urge to overcomplicate what is undeniably an excellent pop record. Refined and polished while never over-glossed.

This tune is like a beautiful alien. The marvellous nature of AYA YVES' musicality is the mysterious dark vibes she taunts you with.
