The first time I saw this, I was obviously intrigued because it was15 minutes, so I just thought it was gonna be a whole story with maybe a couple of interludes and instrumentals, but I was wrong and it was so much more than that!
It was such a great concept. Alohaha was like recreating a vinyl-like you know, with the Side A and Side B, and it was really cool.
The whole vibe and energy is chill, but it’s also tropical and wavy. In the first out of the four tracks, that lingering chorus always gets stuck in my head, “Welcome to your new life, dancing in the light that slips through the blinds […] is it the paradise baby, you hope you’d find,” I think it’s the calming way Jake Sinclair sings it. But it just makes me melt.
There are more moments like this throughout the album and I can tell you, it’ll just get you hooked in listening to it till the end…
Andie constantly thinks of music as an escape to a whole other place. It also brings out this different side of her that only music can. Like, you ever have a bad day, but when you listen to this particular song or shuffle this certain playlist, everything seems better? Yeah, that's pretty much how it makes her feel too. And for her, music has to be playing everywhere– as in everywhere. It's like she has a soundtrack for anything. She can't stop writing or talking about it. It's something she can talk about with you for hours and hours. Music helps her get lost but in the best way possible.
