152 is a new single from Pacoima (Los Angeles) based pop band, Kinda Maybe. The video for this jam contains some impressive vaporwave animations, making for a colorfully ambient, retro-futuristic viewing experience. As for the song itself, it’s pretty straightforward synthpop, which manages to take some surprisingly creative twists and turns along the way. Experiments with alterations in the speed of the recording correspond with the song’s lyrics (which utilize “speeding up and slowing down” as a metaphor). Maybe it’s just me, but I think “Kinda Maybe” is a very marketable group. They have a memorable name and slick aesthetics. 152 is a decent and catchy pop song that grows on you with each subsequent listen. There’s something worthwhile here.
