“Every queen deserves love; every queen should drip in gold” sings Brooklyn songstress Ophelia of globular R&B pearler Falling In, a song sent from Williamsburg with love for your ears in toto. Indeed, with its synthetic bass lines, glistering synths and breathy lyrics of monarchic entitlement, there’s much on exhibition to align the song itself with much cherished ’80s electropop. Think Toto, Martika, Sheena Easton and so on, tinged with the contemporary sass of, say, Banks, Nite Jewel and the like, and sprinkled lightly with dashes of scintillating ’90s R&B nostalgia. The result? Well, rather suitably, it’s nigh on impossible not to fall head over heels for it, and we’d implore you do so posthaste below.
