Lo Lytes – Wet

Lo Lytes is starting to sound more and more like he’d fit comfortably next to Bryson Tiller, The Weeknd, and Tory Lanez on the perfect bedroom playlist. The production has a bounce to it while still hazy and dark, aka the perfect backdrop for his sultry smooth vocals that exude passion. He’s also apparently making this music through the lens of an alternate universe which makes it that much more intriguing. You can imagine “Wet” echoing around a surrealistic world with dream logic, a perpetual state of confusion weaving its way through every little vibration in its artificial atmosphere. I’m about ready to throw on my pair of headphone studios and faded into some imagined imagery of the world he’s pushing.

Sometimes I just want to slip into another reality. That might be through a sci-fi show, a conspiratorial book, something to expand the mind beyond our present reality. Plus that escape adds color to the current reality once we return from momentary vacation. You start to see everything from a different perspective. Watching Lynch will make a rural street loaded with meaning,  watching Star Wars will make the night sky look different, it all offers changes in perspective. Keep searching in this lifetime.
