23-year-old Bay Area artist Petticoat shares his latest pop-driven single “The Middle”. Drawing on ’80s New Wave, the single intertwines electro-pop intimacies with lush bubblegum bass grooves to create a sonic masterpiece in glistening futuristics.
Mixing cosmic synths with fizzy production, the single is a glitterball of fragmented pop. Shining and glimmering throughout, “The Middle” glides with stellar electronic patterns and auto-tuned vocals. Capturing future sonics with a classy hint of nostalgia, Petticoat’s navigation through 80s-inspired pop has enabled him to truly pick and choose fragments of sound to perfect his own style.
Telling us about the release, Petticoat says: “I was listening to a lot of Bananarama and Thompson Twins making this track. The song is a simple ‘break-free’ type song about leaving a hometown situation. The song is sprinkled with events and places that transpired when I was 18, all based around my home with my brother and father.”
Exuberantly flamboyant, “The Middle” is a track that gets you hooked into the world of Petticoat. Instantaneously addictive, this is a track that you won’t be forgetting any time soon.
