This song is dope; who is this?
Not just a lyric from Cyrus’ “17” but a very real internal conversation I found myself having after the Lansing musician’s cut appeared on my SoundCloud feed. Well a few clicks later and all was made clear. He and fellow Michigan native Packy make up The Specktators Collective, an independent record label started by the two artists and a profile I don’t necessarily remember following but am glad I did now.
“17” is an extremely enjoyable callback to those highschool years when life was a party [not the listless soul-suck it’s become today] with Cyrus and his impressively assured vocals taking lead duties while Packy channels his inner teenage self and delivers an energetic flow to round out the upbeat pop offering.
