Earlier today, I stumbled upon music crafted by a producer from New Zealand named boycrush. His latest treat is a song named Flirt, which features Madeira, the new moniker of Kim Pflaum, who’s an ex-member of a dream pop act you might recognize and love, Yumi Zouma. Like its name implies, Flirt is a warm and playful jam. Softly funky, the electronic number reminds me of Blood Orange with a little Niles Rodgers, but steeped in a honeyed, dreamy glow. Flirt will be on boycrush’s Girls On Top EP, out May 27th.
