Ocean Pleasant – up ‘til six (Feat. knight) [Listen]

On the August 6, 2018 edition of No Filter.
I played a track by Ocean Pleasant from New York.

Today Ocean Pleasant released a new single called up ’til six which features knight.
With bright and airy vocals, Ocean Pleasant effortlessly blends between her folk singer-songwriter lyrics with the driving pop production, firmly planting herself as one to watch in todays indie sphere of rising talent and begs for repeated listening during those end of summer drives.

This is a nice summer pop tune to listen to while sun bathing.
If you like Oh Wonder then you should check out Ocean Pleasant.
Song is available on Spotify and iTunes/Apple Music.

I’d give the song:
