SM1LO’s ‘Counting Days’ is a feel-good fusion of pop and electronic
In recent years, the pop/electronic hybrid has emerged as a favored production style among DJs and listeners alike, and New Jersey-based production outfit, SM1LO, is further popularizing the format with their vocal-centric approach to crossover sound. Cue “Counting Days,” a release that will have SM1LO’s streamers following in the titular suit of the track, counting down the days until the duo’s next single.
With a sonic ethos predicated on producing “fun, feel-good records,” SM1LO have reliably brought their vibrant sound to streaming platforms and venues across the Tri-state area, such as Harrah’s Pool in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and New York’s now defunct Pacha nightclub. This stylistic focus holds true on “Counting Days,” which features soaring vocals from Sara Ray layered atop a sultry, house-leaning dance foundation that flirts with pop sensibilities for the duration of the song. For an exemplar of an enticingly executed pop/electronic crossover evocative of summer sound, listeners need not look further than “Counting Days.”
