Carly and The Universe Introduce Rock the Baby

So what happens when you take the racist overtones and pretentiousness away from CocoRosie and add in some soul with a dash of Amy Winehouse-style nu-blues? Personally, I think that’s how we got the above song from Carly and The Universe. It’s quirky, but still features a lot of melodic moments that made me want to write about it. The American alt-R&B group introduced themselves to me in a similarly quirky manner, but their song is all business even within its quirks.

The song is beautiful with just the right amount of throwback energy, kind of like a mix between the artists listed above with a bit of Jorja Smith as well. Its playful innocence highlights the transition from childhood to adulthood. It’s also got a helping dose of nostalgia for the past, a past where some things seemed easier or less complicated. Check out the visuals and song below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
