• Cautious Clay - "Cold War"

    If I trust someone's musical taste enough, hearing: "Check this out, I think you'd fuck with it," is about all that's needed to spark my curiosity. And they were right. "Cold War," the latest single from D.C. native and Brooklyn-based artist Cautious Clay, is a smooth journey from start to finish. Clay's voice is soothing as it effortlessly floats over the glimmering production.

    However, with the subject matter at hand Clay's calmness seems like the result of fatigue from dating during these strange, emotionally detached times. Searching for something genuinely and meaningly is definitely a rough battle when everyone can be so cold, and somehow Clay made a song about it with that warm, comforting feeling we've been looking for.—Adrienne Black
