The lush and hazy “New Life” is an intriguing success from House Husband, representing the project’s debut single. Twinkling synths and a murky bass-forward hop assemble amidst a serene vocal delivery, bolstered gradually by glistening keys evoking a nocturnal ’80s nostalgia. A lingering, eerie synth tone approaching the two-minute turn adds engagingly to the soundscape, concluding with a serene synth-pop familiarity.
The audible inspirations of ’70s jazz fusion, ’80s synth-pop, and modern psych-pop culminate in a thoroughly compelling sound, one that has me anticipating what’s next from House Husband.
