Less than a month on from releasing her track Alright, Washington DC artist Young Summer is back with another track from her forthcoming EP.
Where Alright was an upbeat yet wistful pop record dealing with unrequited love Paused Parade is a beautifully played love song. Written with Matt Hales (aka Aqualung), whose credits include Lianne La Havas and Bat For Lashes, Paused Parade is Young Summer's most cinematic track yet. With hushed pianos and brushed drums, Young Summer's over-dubbed vocals take on a transparently vulnerable sound that feels like a perfect moment from a dream holiday.
Paused Parade feels like a whole new view into what Young Summer is capable of... I can't wait to hear the rest of the EP.
