premiere: Kate Bollinger – Candy
Charlottesville, VA singer and songwriter Kate Bollinger shares the second irresistible single from her forthcoming EP I Don't Wanna Lose, coming later this month. Kate and her low-key but apparently highly proficient band make breezily funky, jazz-inflected dream-pop that will certainly win the hearts of fans of Men I Trust, Clairo, Mac DeMarco and the like. Dreamy new single "Candy", debuting here today, might be Kate's most blissed-out track yet, her effortlessly radiant vocals buoying the track's pillowy, warmly languorous instrumentation, as she sings about, in her words, "preparing for the worst and instead finding the best, which is rare and very sweet." A lovely sentiment befitting such a glowingly sweet and tender jam. I Don't Wanna Lose is out June 21st.
