Lights Turn Low – [Planet Girl]

The word “earworm” is certainly overused (guilty as charged), but in all honesty, I can’t find another adjective to describe the mesmeric abilities of “Lights Turn Low” by Planet Girl. Sure, the song is a ukelele-driven product of bedroom pop, but there’s something more to the picture here. Maybe it’s the silky smooth background vocals done by Planet Girl, herself, or maybe it’s the unrivaled use of melody here, but “Lights Turn Low” is unforgettable. And yes, I totally understand that my obsession with random SoundCloud cuts isn’t always rational. But this one? I don’t know. Planet Girl is onto something, and by all means, I can’t get this song out of my head. There’s purity in the lyrics’ profound sense of affection, and Planet Girl’s voice is equally compelling as it is lovable. She’s a fantastic singer, and one with great conviction, perfectly fit to tell an unforgettable story in just over 2 and a half minutes. “Lights Turn Low” is the product of all of this and more, so listen below!

Denzel Curry: Retracing Roots

“I think about how my art is going to be reflected when I’m gone.” This is something Denzel Curry said to me during our conversation just moments before his stellar performance for 5,000 people in Boston this past Friday in support of Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep tour. Denzel has been an artist that I’ve held in high regard over the years because I’ve been able to recognize his dedication to the art, and to hear him talk about his passion for the craft was inspiring. Denzel Curry has been rapping for about eight years now, and by the young age of twenty-four, he’s already passed huge milestones in the game of rap due to his impressive work ethic and unwavering artistic integrity. Not only does he have an incredible discography under his belt, but he’s already garnered a noticeable impact on the genre of rap at such a young age, all while constantly growing, evolving, and refining his output in the process. On a widespread scale, many fans became aware of Curry after his track “Ultimate” turned into a viral internet sensation, becoming the “water-bottle-flipping” song just a few years back.
