Out June 18th, "Encinitas" sees the duo drift from the pop-infused themes of their debut album, Here For Now, and enter a chapter with roots in the big, bouncy energy of early 2010s dance music. Even more, it sees the artists listed as a featured contributor—a rarity in their career—speaking to the in-demand influence of their sound.
Primed for a summer road trip on California's Pacific Coast Highway, "Encinitas" moves seamlessly between bubbly synth lines, grungy interplays of bass and percussion, and Goth Babe's dreamy vocals. It's packed with personality, pulling at once from Louis The Child's colorful aesthetic and Goth Babe's signature easygoing energy, seen on solo hits like "Weekend Friend" and "Canary Islands."
