Last year we were blown away by soil from serpentwithfeet, and we felt like that was a work that may be difficult to top. We apparently spoke too soon as it seems the LA artist is back with a new song that takes your ears and your mind to a whole new head space. With “Receipts feat. Ty Dolla $ign,” serpentwithfeet proves he can blow our minds even with one track.
The track has a more R&B meets soul feeling where the pacing of the track is very spiritual and almost cheerful. The opening vocals have a strength on their own with no instrumentation behind them, giving plenty of weight before the piano comes in and holds your soul. Ty Dolla $ign shines here with plenty of heft while the track feels personal without carrying too much into the phrasing. The overall affect is one that makes you happy the song is in the world, while you repeat it again and again to soak it all in.
The single can be streamed on all streaming platforms or purchased in all digital music retailers while soil can be purchased on multiple formats directly from Secretly Canadian. serpentwithfeet is on tour beginning August 30 at End of the Road Festival in Salisbury, UK until September 07 and 08 at Lollapalooza Berlin in Berlin, Germany.
