Stalgia’s electro dream-pop number “Heaven + Mimosas” floats and hovers and levitates over a fluorescent-colored ground. The way the LA-duo’s number sounds I imagine a scene of a cartoon character suspended in the air, toes pointing straight down, pursuing a pleasant smell. It just has that sort of low-stakes joy to it. Lauren Day’s breathy vocals aren’t doing anything particularly special over the skitching hi-hats and bass prattles, but they’re still magically captivating. “I can’t remember a time when I felt so comfortable,” she repeats several times throughout the song. If only for a few minutes, we’re as comfortable as she is. Walking on clouds and enjoying every step.
Stalgia’s previous single “In the Trees” dropped back in July and is also well worth your time.
