Trends come and go, but some things never go out of style. So whilst hareem pants may be gone before the end of the year, and the hipster bands that wear them might finally move on from chillwave shortly after, there’s never going to be a shortage of fashionable new acts using semi naked women to promote their art. Exploiting a couple of scantily clad women their artwork, Redondo Beach have a sound that similarly feels like it’s always going to be in style.
An aesthetic seemingly stolen from a hundred French b-moves, the music is funky, smooth and almost unbearably hip, this is the lounge music of your dreams, stolen from an age where smoking was still cool instead of a horrible, crippling dependency that will certainly kill you one day. You want it playing whilst you swim in a pool on rooftop, whilst you sip champagne and eat at the best restaurants surrounded by people as beautiful as yourself. When there’s a montage made of your life, this are the sounds you want to accompany it, all steamy and almost unbearably sexy. If there’s ever an age when ‘She Loves Her’ doesn’t sound amazing, it’s probably not an age that you’d want to live through anyway.
