So it’s pretty safe to say Hilly Dilly’s label 20XX knows what’s up. All of their releases so far with courtship, Isaac Lee, joan, Alayna, and Semi-Attractive Boy have garnered much deserved attention, and their newest artist Life In Sweatpants is another bright addition to their super well-curated family.
“Girls” is their debut single and it’s a pretty glorious introduction to what they’re all about - thrivin’, vibin’, takin’ their sweet time, and doing what they wanna do between some wobbly synth bass and wiggly guitars. I’m not going to go for the low-hanging fruit here and say something like “it’s the new soundtrack to your summer,” as it’s obviously going to flourish under the cloudless skies of the next few months, but I will admit I played this with an ice cream cone in hand on a hot day today and I don’t think my senses could have been more content for those three and a half minutes. Give it a spin and bask in it.
Also, the name: Life In Sweatpants. A mantra? A lifestyle? A goal? Any way you slice it, nobody is going to be opposed to 24/7 carefree comfort. A+.
