Jordana Lilly – “Push & Pull”

“Push & Pull” is a successful new track from Jordana Lilly, a Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter who infuses old-school R&B with a modern pop shine. Lyrics like “I’ve got him screaming my name, and he learned it yesterday,” combine with suave orchestral flourishes and a hypnotic rhythmic backing for an emotive, seductive success. The lyrical sentiments – encompassing “one night stands, compartmentalizing, and animal instincts,” – combine with a memorable melodic construction to remain wholly accessible, while still separating from the hordes of modern R&B, touting a distinctive sound and convincing nocturnal atmosphere.

“Push & Pull” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2018’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
