Shout out to Maria for recommending this track it fits perfectly with the vibe of this playlist. “Soft Plans (v1)” is a smooth and psychedelic R&B experience from up-and-coming artist Alan Lili. I am very impressed with the production quality and artistry from Alan Lili; it is clear that Alan is super talented and will continue to find success in his career.
Anyway, the song’s instrumental is very entrancing and relaxing. The combination of the bright guitar melodies and smooth drum patterns makes me wish it was summer already. Also, the horn sections are a nice touch. Overall, the beat fits the vibe of a picnic on a sunny day perfectly and will definitely be my go-to.
Alan’s soft and soothing vocal performance only capitalizes on the beautiful production. I am also a big fan of how Alan vocalizes as if he is an instrument that is layered within the production; this style adds to the psychedelic feeling of the music.
Overall, Soft Plans (v1) is an absolute banger and easily one of my favorite songs of the year. I will definitely be listening to more songs from Alan Lili from now on. Make sure to play this song on a warm summer day.
