I'm not going to lie. When I saw this particular pitch enter my inbox, I almost skipped it on the name of the track alone. 90 Pounds of Pete
has a new track called "Backward Hats 'N' Uggs," and before I listened to the track and realized it was ironic, I could feel my brain melting out of my ears cause that might be the bro-iest fashion statement in the history of low couture. Don't make my same snap judgment. 90 Pounds of Pete is ninety pounds of chillwave fun.
We're premiering the above track today, and once you reconcile that the title is lampooning that particular look, you realize this is a fun, summery track in the Neon Indian/Washed Out vein. Shimmering synths are layered over languorous percussion and hazed out vocals. It's the sort of track you lay down at the chillest party this side of Williamsburg.
