Sunset Strip 04:41


A few months ago, Australian sensation Veeshy treated us to “Let Me Down” (w/ Brandon Mignacca), a synthwave-influenced gem. Similarly inspired by retro-tinged electronic music, Veeshy now presents “Sunset Strip,” a spellbinding new cut, featuring the evocative lyrics and honeyed vocals of Bay Area-based act Phonic Youth.

Veeshy has always been a master craftsman of hallucinogenic soundscapes, rife with kaleidoscopic arpeggios, and “Sunset Strip” is no exception. Jetting out of the gaze with a psychedelic array of synth themes, “Sunset Strip” immediately entrances the listener. Yet, Veeshy’s (signature) moody pads create a sort of emotional counterweight to the arrangement, transporting the listener to the noir-laden streets of Los Angeles in the late-night hours. It’s this bittersweet dichotomy of happy and melancholic textures in Veeshy’s compositions that are so seductive and reminiscent of the 80s production aesthetic. While the instrumental track of “Sunset Strip” is already quite layered and memorable, Phonic Youth delivers a knockout lyrical and vocal performance from the very first couplet: “Remember when we were free / Making the world anything we want it to be.” His vocals continue to unfurl at a hypnotic cadence, culminating with the transcendent, hurts-so-good refrain, “Now all we have / are memories / of you and me.” The retro-flavored chemistry of these extraordinary artists remains palpable until the song’s completion.
