"Cool To You" is the third release of this year from Taylor Van Ginkel's solo project, Teenage Priest. Written and produced by the Los Angeles artist, he expresses the struggle of wanting to be perceived as cool, despite straying from his internal desires. Definitely relatable, especially in the era of social media, but I won't go down that rabbit hole.
With a strong and catchy chorus, this track will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Breezy guitars paired with the DIY, lo-fi sounding vocals of Ginkel (a bedroom pop™ specialty) make for a supremely dreamy sound. The perfect track to lounge around to, which is perfect for me because that's all I do.
Looking forward to future releases from Teenage Priest!
