The recent release follows their 2017 song “Girls.” The Most Radicalist describes the new track as an “intriguing blend of contagious alt pop and indie.” While Hillydilly writes: “their gritty production, dreamy deliveries, and stellar writing make for an indie-alternative gem.” You can catch the latest Life in Sweatpants single below, and check out the complete Hillydilly and The Most Radicalist posts here and here.
