Thugli – Cold Winter (feat. Bea Moon)

I expected to be wearing shorts and t-shirts during my first month in LA, but it turns out that even paradise is chilly during the winter months. Coincidentally, I feel that notion resonating throughout “Cold Winter,” a joint that touches upon the nuanced nature of romance.

Featuring dense trap production from Thugli that contrasts thunderous 808s with ear-piercing synths, Bea Moon croons, “it’s cold in this winter, it’s cold in this winter outside.” Her vocals synthesize the best elements of pop and R&B to paint a portrait of the push-and-pull between those less attractive days within a relationship and the mutual lust that keeps it alive during said days. While this tension has been well documented in pop and R&B as of late, the encompassing feel of Thugli’s production combined with Moon’s infectious vocals makes this track a must listen.
