“Should’ve Gone With You” is a very melodic piece of psych-pop that successfully aims to mix joyful contemplation with nostalgia. There’s a vintage, hypnotic feel in the track’s production and tone — a bit reminiscent of early Ariel Pink, though with a passionate funk-laden vocal passion reminiscent of Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo. With the warbled space-friendly guitars and anthemic vocal delivery, comparisons to Jefferson Starship also aren’t far off. References aside, this is an enticing, extremely hook-y piece of songwriting from Dallas-based Native Fox, with a nostalgic and hypnotic arsenal that sounds infectiously timeless.
The track is off the new Native Fox EP Floor Model, written and recorded at Billy’s Room in Garland, TX. Stream the rest of it below:
