Last October, The FADER columnist Adam Harper wrote about electronic music's current fascination with cuteness. One of the artists he held up as an example was the London-based So So In Luv, whose "1+ Only" caught his attention for the way it "peculiarly twists together kitsch romance and hard syncopation." Time, it seems, has softened So So In Luv: new single "Slip Thru Your Hand" has a much more human vocal (it's real, not a sample), a feather-light melody, and heart-thawing lyrics, like it was always destined/ to slip through your hand. "'Slip Thru Your Hand' is an autobiographical love song," So So In Luv told The FADER over email. "A true story about a boy who fell in love with someone who he thought was unattainable. It's about changing destiny, assertively going after what you want, and falling in love."
