What is it with all these big-name producers namedropping Coachella in their new singles? First Matoma teamed with Magic! and D.R.A.M. for the excrebale “Girl At Coachella,” and now Cashmere Cat has a song called “9 (After Coachella)” with MØ and SOPHIE. I guess they must believe it’s good marketing?
Fortunately, this latest festival-citing electronic track is miles ahead of the last one in terms of quality and taste. It’s a spacious neon trap-pop production that eventually works up to a clanking, clattering instrumental, toggling back and forth between the two modes and somehow making them feel like they belong in the same song. Our narrator is MØ, who sings, “I like the way your body moves and/ I like the way you spread confusion.” Listen below.
