It’s a powerful and industrial sort of pop, with a prominent synthesizer hook and a sequenced beat. The gated sound of the snare and kick drum keep the beat popping, and the falsetto-hush vocals are the centerpiece of the production style.

With an art-rock sensibility that looks back at artists like Björk, or even Grace Jones, Lupa J concocts a melodic reason to consider someone new: perhaps a better way into someone’s heart is through their headphones.

“And you’re not what I pictured
but you’re doing it better than my imagination could and you’ve
found your way into my nights”— Lupa J

Every day is a chance to discover something new. You're In My Headphones, the new single from Lupa J, might just be the good-time soundtrack you were looking for.

Lupa J is a young singer and songwriter from Australia who was discovered on Unearthed High. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
