Chiff – “Pool Party”


It’s approaching that time of year where, instead of accompanying summer, listeners seek tracks with a summer-minded soundscape to escape the perpetual arrival of brisker weather (unless you live in one of those gorgeous areas where it’s summer year-round). You can throw Chiff’s new single “Pool Party’ into the summer-yearning mix, a short hip-hop track with sun-shining vibes that was written specifically “about crushing on a girl at a pool party who already is with someone.” The project is vague in origin, though has an impressive Soundcloud with several notable efforts, including this one — where a gliding, aquatic beat meshes with a smooth-flowing delivery, with the occasional glistening synth arpeggio adding to the addictive flavor. Short, but very sweet.

The project’s recent EP, Yellow Paint, can be streamed below, and shows ample potential in both the beats and overall flow:
