Drake said “No new friends”, right? Welllll, we’re gonna side with Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt on this one – sorry champagnepapi.
Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt (try saying that five times fast), is the project of this “one dude”, Eban, from San Diego. With a couple albums already under his belt, ‘New Friends’ is the latest single from the bedroom-pop artist. This “charming little acoustic tune” is a melodic journey that resembles a lullaby, wrapped in a ballad, and then dipped in a serenade. The addition of harmonious backing vocals (Katy Kirby) elevates the track to the perfect love song that it is, creating a somehow reassuring message that “everything is gonna be alright.”
Raisin Bran, because this ditty warms us up like sunshine.
