“I Used To”
Rewards, who we understand to be one Aaron Pfenning, is also co-responsible for one Chairlift, who you may well have heard of. This being his latest musical project, it’s incredibly easy to draw up instant sonic comparisons between the two. To us it is that blend of New York chillwave which the indie crowd lap up at the moment (we’re a bit guilty too), but the most poignant aspect of this latest effort it Aaron’s vocal and lyrical touch, which largely reminds us of Roxy Music crooner Brian Ferry. Yes, we appreciate we’re about to get bollocked from various corners for this statement. But that’s cool. We get bollocked all the time. Have a listen to I Used To below; if you dig it, you can download the very same tune from the dude’s bandcamp page linked above.
