Lyrics for your Instagram captions:
“Fell in love and it comes with a price
All your loving, it distracts me”
“You leave me with a smile on your face
You’re dressed up for me
Always talking me to stay”
“Feeling winter in my summer skin”
Where you’re most likely to hear it: NPR, on the soundtrack of an art house film, Urban Outfitters
Why you should listen to it: It’s pure and poetic pop music with a queer sensibility. While the EP’s themes reflect a coming-of-age moment, everyone can surely connect with the reflections on queer romance from longing to lust.
