As gorgeous a song as Little Dragon’s “Pretty Girls” is, with it’s deep bassline and lucid synth arrangement, Lil Silva’s take on it seems just as mesmerizing. With whirring, serpentine production, the dynamic flip of the track casts a warmly atmospheric bubble over the original.
Yukimi Nagano’s voice is left mostly undisturbed, and is just as clear and lovely as ever. Yet the song’s sonic transformation works as a welcomed change of pace. If you missed SNTW’s review of Little Dragon’s excellent 2014 album, Nabuma Rubberband, check it out here.
