Le Youth – I Could Always (feat. MNDR)
Wes James, also known as Le Youth, is skillfully adept at crafting sounds that beckon to a nostalgic past while simultaneously incorporating the touchstones of contemporary production.
His newest single “I could Always,” featuring MNDR, is a cleansing, groove-heavy, roll-off-the-tongue dance ballad in which MNDR’s invigorating vocals are highlighted by synths that wash over the listeners ears like waves at the beach. Le Youth’s most impressive element are his impeccably vintage — yet crisp — drum samples, which serve to furnish the track with a palpable vigor.
“I Could Always” is a carbonated intersection of vintage pop, synth wave, and 90s house into a singular sounding amalgamation; a true dance floor wonder.
