By the time Thursday rolls around, you’ve probably heard so many trap remixes, alternative takes on R&B that will spark Twitter arguments, and terrible Drake mash-ups that you’re feeling a little disillusioned with the state of current music.
Luckily, Har Mar Superstar is here with a soulful new single, and it’s fucking awesome. The title references Sam Cooke (“lady, you shot me” is what Cooke said after being fatally shot by hotel manager Bertha Franklin) and the track thrives with the brassy, unpretentious spirit of the R&B of decades past.
Bye Bye 17 comes May 6 via Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records.
