Snakehips—the U.K. production duo behind the hit "All My Friends" featuring Tinashe and Chance the Rapper—is back with "Falling" from their new EP All My Friends, and it's a true-to-form R&B smash. The track features London singer Malika, over a swirl of strong horns and jazzy melodies, belting out lyrics about the joys of new love–– just in time for spring: Do you hear me / I'm gonna fall for you.

The group took a step back from their more recognizable futuristic sound to create this more vintage R&B. "With 'Falling,' we felt like making a more classic-sounding soul [and] R&B record," Snakehips told The FADER over email. "We used to use big samples a lot in our beats so it was cool to go back to that style, and Malika's voice worked so good with the vibe.”
