Based out of Phoenix and Los Angeles Samuel L Cool J are a pleasant surprise that will be sure to lighten up your day with "Slip and Slide". Started by Joel Marquard and Haendel Balzora, the collective have positioned themselves in the perfect place to turn heads with their soulful take at surf pop. As the weather is beginning to warm up for the majority of the country, songs like "Slip and Slide" are perfect additions to any mix accompanying a beach bonfire.
"Slip and Slide" carries a even flow throughout, guided by a driving bassline, piano runs and straightforward drum beat. Harmonized vocals and dueling guitars make up the middle ground, where other instrumentals are also added to draw effects into the song, including a grounded saxophone solo and a warming string accompaniment. Through and through, "Slip and Slide" offers up plenty to sink your teeth into with a raw sound that is sure to rub you the right way.
