Cue the classic convertible, some sunny weather, and California’s own Sunset Boulevard for this track. Pull out your freshest shades (even if it’s night time), your classiest Fedora, and your spiffiest threads. Grab two of your coolest friends, some weed and brew, and get ready to cruise the streets of LA for what’s about to be another epic night of engaging introductions and Instagram moments, topped off by the best tunes not even money can buy to serve as the soundtrack for the entire ride.
Everything Is Gone is one for the books as its Dr. Dre like pianos and hollering synths make it a perfect mix of that “Entourage” /”How To Make It In America” vibe that places the listener in a blissful mix of both coasts.
Traces of the pianos from Aloe Blacc’s “I Need A Dollar” and the overall airy vibe of the record let off images of a cool group of kids from NYC basking in that beautiful air that only Sunset Blvd can provide at night. It’s the air that carries the scent of a multitude of cultures intertwined with the aromas of the Sunshine State’s natural beauties. Crisp breezes from the beaches and mountains mixed in with the sultry scents of all the beautiful people out and about partying in that beautiful Cali glow.
A bassline that excels from finely executed groove, drum patterns that switch up throughout and never tire, and those louder than life pop vocals found on most hit records allow this Pop Etc tune to be categorized as something that could easily become “popular” music on the charts.
When… Everything Is Gone.. Will… We still wonder what went wrong… When… Everything Is Gone.. Will… We still wonder what went wrong...”
Everything Is Gone makes everything alright and POP ETC has found a good lane to introduce their new identity with (formerly The Morning Benders). Subtle, low key, airy, nonchalant, and smooth.
