With a slow and ethereal hybrid groove that joins machine sounds and a pan flute bass patch, this song delivers on energy, melody, and a wide mix. The lyrics construct images of naked bodies, silhouettes on the wall, and dangerous attraction.
“I want to take all day and night to get it right
spend days on days with you
so we can grow like lovers do”— ARLO
There is a distinct minimalism to the vocal mix here: instead of stacking parts on top of the lead vocal, ARLO opted instead for a few small contrapuntal lines and atmospheric elements from the rhythm section. The result is an arrow-like targeting of the sultry modern Pop-Rock persona.
ARLO is a musical artist from London. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
