I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve heard from Charlie 3X and that continues here, with his collaboration with ARJR. Of course, it’s ARJR’s show and he owns it, a relaxed flow that takes time building his sentiments and telling his story, honest and earnest without seeming trite. The beat here is about as low key as it could be, a contemplative thinker that drifts in and out sleepily, a daydream of a track that leans hard on jazz qualities.
Strangely, there is an Angelo Badalementi sound to this track, a doomed vibe that begs to be played at night, bathed in the neon of the streets, smoke wafting off manhole covers as you ride by. ARJR and company paint a picture, not only with the superlative production here by NXLVN (who I’m also new to), but in their lyrics which are thoughtful and thought provoking.
You can listen below and I highly recommend that you do just that.
