Jimmy Olson is a force. This track exhibits his funky individuality as an artist, songwriter, and keyboard warlock. "Ava's" unique piano melody pulls at the heartstrings while simultaneously sending you into the sky to that sunny place that you want to be. Blend that with some gritty free-association lyrics and banging hot drum tones, and you have yourself a track that is more than fitting for this Groove You playlist.
It is rare to find songs that instantly make you want to dance, but also encompass a vibe that you haven't heard before. That's what its all about. It sounds to me like Olson awoke inspired and determined to complete an alluring song regardless of the tendency to overthink it. Nailed it. Creativity can be a bolt of lightning that is now or never. If you're in the appropriate setting (not driving or walking), try experiencing this tune without opening your eyes.

The bass line and production on this track are undeniably hot. Mishell Ivon is dropping vocals with some sass here. Bringing a funky, synthy, get up and groove vibe and choice tones all around.

On the surface this hip little groover is catchy and dancy. But the Wanderlings give you much more than just that. You also get a pungent percussion break equipped with cuíca, and a fierce guitar solo. Accessible, yet tasty.

This fat, tasty track has a mystic warmth to it. It feels real good.
