San Francisco-born, Northern California-raised singer-songwriter Libba released one of the most sombre love songs to have ever hit the airwaves with her seminal single, Summer Fling. Naturally, we’re obsessed with it.
In minor key, she captures the way in which we affectionately imprint on each other during relationships that expire come the autumn. The downtempo single carries some hallmarks of shoegaze and dark dream pop, but her vocals soar far above the morosely artful instrumentals in her signature, soulful genre-bending fashion that puts emotion at the vanguard.
Summer Fling is available to stream via YouTube.
