'scuse me while I slide into Wes Anderson's DMs and tell him he needs this new Matahara track in his soundtrack. Quirky underwater pop that feels so warm to the touch.

it's such a magical, chilled, moreish slice of bedroom pop and this song in particular feels like a new project for one of the ocean party legends. matahara keeps impressing big time and i can't help but think she's the type of artist who will be like a best kept secret among your friends.
