Kaerhart – For What It’s Worth

Kaerhart’s “Drain My Love” was one of the most infectious songs of 2017 – the hook “I just wanna fill my cup, cause you drain my love” is a line that’s circulated through my brain more times than I can count. Thus, I’m beyond stoked to hear her return with a moody new single that further extends her artistic range. Its low-end is brooding, its atmosphere is sparse, and the transition into its hook is utterly intoxicating. Kaerhart’s vocals glide over the sonic shift from buzzing synths to dense, trap-leaning production with an effortless swagger that has me rewinding to the moment over and over.

I’m also infatuated with the vocal effects that are sprinkled throughout “For What It’s Worth”. The delayed echo during the hook and the harmonized vocals are equally hypnotic – they’re little touches, sure, but they take the song to the next level of enjoyment. For a reimagining of a mid 20th century classic, Kaerhart makes it to the next level in style. With that, I’ll be anxiously awaiting whatever she unveils next.
