Lo Lytes just came across my radar and he does it in stunning fashion on his brand new single. It’s called “Winter” and it has enough sensual friction to melt all the ice of this season away in an instant (okay, so there’s no ice in Los Angeles right now, but you get the idea). The instrumental has some dope, understated tropical flair and an effortlessly cool groove while Lo Lytes’ vocals are the perfect crossover between pop and r&b. It has all the makings of a lowkey hit and has me extremely stoked to hear what’s coming on his EP which apparently drops later this year.
It’s not the most popular opinion but winter is without a doubt my favorite season of the year. The way the chill of the night hits your skin is like no other feeling and it gives you the perfect excuse to coop up indoors and dive deep into reading or that new favorite TV show – it’s the perfect solo activity, but if you have a significant other to keep you warm and keep you company, even better. I’ve personally been spending my time reading about spiritual experiences in a historical context and binging Russian Doll and I honestly can’t imagine a better way to ride out this February. Here’s to hoping your winter has been well spent too.
