This is very special. Such a lovely textured voice on top of a seemingly simple instrumentation but the groove in undeniable. So much clarity in the mix and ever element breathing clearly.

Reminded me of Wings on first listen - or at least the Wings songs that I like. And I think that's a good thing.

this is great. its got the best parts of soft rock - smooth, slinky & elegant - but it's not smarmy & gross. that's an achievement. it reminds me of destroyer, or a sexier midlake
