Your Smith gives us a warm and sunny dance hit to get us through the winter.

I’m hearing an extension of that Sheryl Crow hit from years ago, All I Wanna Do. It’s just that this time, this bass is funky, we have horns, and it’s a full-on dance party: this ain’t your mama’s fooling around.

It’s all very groovy, with some Rhodes through a delay pedal, guaguancó on the congas, a tambourine on the backbeat; the clean funk guitar, the big octaves on bass. Every box is checked. This one’s a party. Your Smith gives us a warm and sunny dance hit to get us through the winter.

“Up at the spot
where if you’re hurting at all
they’ll crack another cerveza
whether you waste it or not”— Your Smith

Minneapolis native Your Smith relocated to Los Angeles in 2016. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
