Released at a fitting time as any, this new joint from ARONA MANE and P.T. is a jam that lives up to its gold-plated source material. It’s sleek and smooth, like riding through Beverly Hills with the top down and soaking up the entire moment. The retro-future tag is also super fitting as the track flips a soulful sound at its core into a worldly r&b outing whose hook is utterly infectious. Seriously, good luck getting this one out of your head once you’ve spun it once.
Speaking of the Oscars and Los Angeles, I just started at a brand new office on Hollywood Boulevard today. It’s a coming-of-age moment for my career that finds all the work I’ve been putting in since I was 14 paying off in a new and exciting way. I’ve come from writing music reviews on Tumblr from my couch in Georgia to working in a space with a 360 degree view of all of Los Angeles – the Hollywood hills in one direction, Beverly Hills in another, and downtown off in the distance. I think I’ll consider this my own personal Oscar.
