JohnnyDarling Characterizes A Chill Southern California Lifestyle in "Waves"

Lately I've been stepping away from hip hop and leaning more towards the vibrant feel-good songs for the summer. To satiate my need for this sound, I was luckily sent a DM by an up-and-coming electro-funk soul duo. Consisting of Ian Rivera and Cedric Ivory, JohnnyDarling is a promising group based in Southern California who's latest single "Waves" characterizes the livelihood of their area, though I lightweight feel like I'm in Hawaii listening to their music.

A simple cover art complimented with a simple song is all I needed. It's nothing thought provoking, but rather just a clear-cut record that takes me away from the complexities of life.

I haven't felt this good about an group since discovering MIKNNA earlier this year, and if you're into music that'll sooth your soul, you'll want to stay tapped in with JohnnyDarling.
