This song is a simple, infectious melody, delivered with impeccably groomed vocals, and a smooth late-night catharsis.

This one feels just a bit throwback at first, with the analog-sounding synth on 8th-note repeat, and the guitar reverb has that little hint of Miami Vice. But then the baritone vocal hits, and then the alto harmony, and the whole song starts feeling warm and blanket-like, with a slightly muted band sound tucked under a wooly delay-reverb.

By the end: the hook is etched into your brain, the vocals feel like the pondering sound of your own inner vision, and the drums feel underwater. This song is a simple, infectious melody, delivered with impeccably groomed vocals, and a smooth late-night catharsis.

Indie-Folk outfit The Paper Kites announce On The Corner Where You Live out September 21 on Nettwerk Records. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
