J. pastel, the duo from Chicago fuse 80’s synth pop with modern day bedroom pop in a masterful way. Their latest single ‘Senegal’ is a shining example of their eclectic, fun and infectious sound.
The single opens up with a groove infused drumbeat that paths the way for ethereal vocals. Glistening guitar and shimmering keys create a warm aura around the listener. It’s a wonderfully fun and bouncy track that is totally spellbinding. You cannot help but fall for this duo’s energetic charm.
Speaking about the track the duo explain “Senegal is a song about going to the ends of the earth to be with the person you love. It could be anywhere, but as long as you’re together it doesn’t matter.”
