“We’ve all been in a room with no way out. Whether it be in relationships or falling back into bad habits.”
Copenhagen’s Retro Kid embodies that itchiness perfectly with this indietronica-meets-soul jam called “The Room.” Full of Korg minilogue synth splashes, samples from soul music, and a TR-8 drum machine, “The Room” feels timeless AND retro while still retaining the urgency of 2021-era bedroom-pop. The song is ultimately built around a deep groove, and despite it’s lyrical ennui, is definitely danceable. Fans of Metronomy, Tame Impala, and Justice will enjoy this a lot.
