Reliably informed

A new carefree take on having time on your hands like you’ve never had before, singer-songwriter Caitie brings us this summery ode to whiling away your days with someone in your thoughts.

Gently cushioned by soft, distant steel drums, it drifts along on a tropical breeze, its intermittent harmonies creamy as coconut milk. With its slick beat, and clean, juicy vocals that sound particularly pristine and onomatopoeic on phrases like “icy drinks”, it’s tight and chart-ready, and calls to mind the cool, sugary stylings of Zara Larsson. For Caitie, there is no room for boredom: she takes in the endless empty hours that make up being young in 2021 and does nothing but appreciate them. A breath of fresh air.
