Carly Rae is

2022-05-12 by MonotoneCulprit | 38 Comments
Sputnik darling and your parents' favorite one-hit wonder Carly Rae is coming Jeps-in like a Western Wind on her first new material since her version of every pop-star's inevitable Christmas album.

The tone here suggests another stylistic shift for the Canadian, the last of which thrust her firmly into the Sputnik spotlight. The California transplant looks to recreate that success with this new single heard below.

This was nice and breezy but nothing amazing. I guess I prefer her upbeat "bops".

as sowing said Carly excels at straight up bops and bangers

I like it more than the Solar Power songs but it's still not really there for me. Not as much as I liked the Dedicated singles, I guess.

I have no problem with chill lush Carly. I just like it better when there's a melodic hook like in "Now I Don't Hate California After All" or "Bucket".

Again, I'm fine with the vibes here. But will anyone remember this song in a couple months? Time will tell.

it'll invade you like the smell of fresh cut grass, a feeling so overwhelming, never completely familiar.
