The Internet feat. KAYTRANADA - "Girl"

Syd Tha Kyd's voice is one of the most underrated instruments on the music scene today. Its fragility is so relatable because it sounds like it's coming from a timid person that will likely retreat back into their cocoon after they've said what they've had to say. For a lot of people, the general appeal in vocalists can sometimes be that the confidence they display also provide a window of escape from the monotony of life. They share feelings that we only fantasize about sharing and for that, they take up space in our hearts and our playlists. Syd's voice isn't overpowering, but her vulnerability has an incredible amount of sex appeal. It's especially true on "Girl," a slab of cosmic soul coated in molasses with a bubbling bass practically fit for slow, gyrating limbs. The tenderness on display here serves as a reality check that as deeply as some of us might desire something, the most that we can usually muster up is a whisper. Thankfully, few can whisper like The Internet.
