Laid Back Bedroom Pop from Oklahoma. - Josh Fudge: Second Date
Nostalgic undertones and big, washy choruses make this song better every time you listen.
We have written about Josh before - he is a young indie performer and songwriter that mixes elements of electronic folk, dance music, and dream pop. "Second Date" is a wistful and cheery slow-soul confection filled with fuzzy synths and warm, vintage tones that brings to mind the laid-back vibes of Mac DeMarco.
This dreamy synth jam explores the unfortunate circumstances of a relationship that has lost its momentum. As we spend a few minutes missing the way things used to be, Josh Fudge delivers a haunting and understated vocal performance. His smooth tenor blends with a jazz-flavored club vibe, as we enjoy a silky brew of swing beats and ambling major-chord turnarounds. Nostalgic undertones and big, washy choruses make this song better every time you listen, as "Second Date" draws a clear line from 60's dinner-jazz all the way to modern bedroom pop. Exciting stuff from this Oklahoma City prodigy.
