88Rising singer/producer/writer AUGUST 08 stunned us with the pulsating Blood On My Hands featuring Smino earlier this year and now he's back with an uptempo alt-R&B/dance banger called Simple Pleasures.
With his soulful vocals paired with a dancey club beat, Simple Pleasures is about those relationships where you're playing with fire in a friends-with-benefits arrangement, only for one party to go and catch some feelings. Dammit.
In a recent interview with Cool Accidents, AUGUST 08 explained, "It's a fire song. It's up tempo... it's a genre I'm stepping into called cry-on-the-dancefloor. It's emotional music that's super upbeat.
"[Our generation] is so confused [about relationships], I don't get it. But nobody wants to commit, it's so confusing! I'm done with us."
The song premiered on triple j this week and we're definitely gonna be wiping away tears this Friday night at the club.
