Since his vicious transformation from Mirror Kisses to his own namesake on “Wonder Gently,” George Clanton has been making a lot of effort to be taken more seriously as an artist. Proving his worth by rapidly outgrowing his bedroom niche-pop roots in favor of throwback stadium-sized synth-pop, his upcoming album 100% Electronica is shaping up to be one of the coolest sounding records of the year.
His newest single from the album, “It Makes the Babies Want to Cry,” is easily one of his brightest and most colorful tracks to date, taking elements from his work as ESPRIT and repurposing them into a easily digestible package. With its infectious synths and vocal melodies, “Babies” is the perfect end of summer jam for those looking for one last ray of heat. But as long as George continues to make music, summer will remain eternal regardless.
