Boston duo Sonnymoon are known for genre-hopping quite a bit—their sound has encapsulated smooth electronic pop and downcast R&B, and vocalist Anna Wise appeared on Kendrick Lamar's 2012 LP good kid, m.A.A.d city. So it's no surprise that "Pop Music," the first taste of their new LP The Courage of Present Times, is another sonic curveball with tart synths and whispered vocals that sound closer to what PC Music do than anything that would appear on a Kendrick album. "I had to admit to my boyfriend that I was having inter-dimensional intercourse with another man," Wise explains the song's meaning to FADER.
I told him it didn't mean anything because it happened during a dream, but he couldn't get over it, so he started to ignore me. Once that happened, I began to dream about him instead. Then we broke up."
The Courage of Present Times is out March 23.
