“I only wanna please you babe”
The latest from Blak Emoji is an enticing hook-filled seduction, the kind of song that makes you want to turn the lights down low the second it hits your speakers. Known for their mix of driving indie rock and sizzling R&B, Blak Emoji leans hard on the latter during “Lust Love Above”— and delivers. Driving, dirty synths and a stripped down beat are all the anchor they need to get the feeling going. Singer Kelsey Warren calls it “a love sex pop joint about pleasing your lover.”
The track hails from their forthcoming debut full-length, KUMI, which drops September 21st. Check out www.blakemoji.com for more.
