It's a toe-tapper with a silky-smooth lead vocal and a dry drum mix that feels live from a faux-fur couch in the foyer.

With her own take on electronic pop and a nod to the classic rhythm and blues songwriting of Carole King, Jessie Munro gives us a radio hit that lives somewhere between Phoenix and Charlotte Day Wilson. It's a toe-tapper with a silky-smooth lead vocal and a dry drum mix that feels live from a faux-fur couch in the foyer. You know, next to the manhattan bar and the cigar-cutter.

However, the throwback elements are suitably vague, with a confidence that navigates between rock hints of an Anne Wilson to the sharp wit of an Aimee Mann. The takeaway is a modern gem that fits in either of a rock or pop setting.

Jessie Munro is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles who was born in Toronto.
