With its stomping, synthesized insistence, it would be easy to mistake Los Angeles (or, as they put it, “sunny, but twisted Los Angeles, California”) duo Pr0files’ new single “Forgive” for a thought rattling around Kavinsky’s brain. The work of longtime friends Lauren Pardini—whose powerful vocal unveils itself over the course of the song—and producer Danny Sternbaum, “Forgive” provides the sort of sing-along-while-you’re-drunk satisfaction that makes so many guilty pleasures of the sparkling 1980s. Get lost on a night drive in the Hollywood Hills to this one or just belt the hook in your bedroom.
