Slits & $lie return with the fantastic new R&B-Pop dance floor slider on ‘Like That’. The quick start is like an engine humming as the song builds and soon we are flying fast on this highway, hair swirling in the wind with your sunglasses on looking all fresh.
Taken off ‘Burnt Out’, the new school energy is vibrant here as the duo speaks about what life is like for them right now and how it is. This is about leaving those demons for another day as you are having too much fun right now with your homies. You know you need to fix yourself up as things are getting rather hazy and you are losing touch with reality a bit much but not today. The night is still way too young and you want to see her again and tell her how you feel inside.
The beat is simple and meshes well with the vibe of this track, the lo-fi layers adds to the energy and you feel like sparking up and swimming in a pool while listening here. These are two young musicians who are still learning about themselves, other people and right now the friend circle is tight like a well-tied scout knot.
‘Like That’ from Slits & $lie is that new track you will tell your friends about and play again and again; real loud. It’s a perfect track for summer and speaks about how love can make your mind spin around like a lost wheel sometimes. After all, when you are young you think that you can do anything and you need good friends to hold you back sometimes to show they actually care. Right now though, the drinks are flowing and no-one wants to be the party stopper.
