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.
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.
