We interrupt this blog post to bring you an important message for the grown and sexy; Alina Baraz has dropped one of the year’s smooth bedroom jams. “I Don’t Even Know Why Though,” found on the singer-songwriter’s debut solo EP The Color Of You released last week, is a matured take on the ever-seductive cycle of falling back in with someone you know is no good for you.
But when the loving is good, sometimes you just can’t help yourself and Baraz captures that desirous mood convincingly. Over an electro-R&B backing, rich in bawdy bass and slinky synth strings, she exudes a sensuous vulnerability throughout her verses while still asserting a cognizant confidence in each chorus. A problematic plight never sounded so sumptuous.
