Everyone’s favourite Smart Girl Club rocker, Destiny, releases a video for her new single, “Orange Blossom”.
Moving her retro-chic timeline forward into the early 80s, Destiny’s latest single, “Orange Blossom”, comes wrapped in a lo-fi, VHS aesthetic, filtered through the sunlit haze of late summer excursions.
Set amidst Coney Island’s now mostly-quiet rides and arcades, Destiny struts, dances, grooves, and sways to the lilt and swing of the track’s digital synths, laid-back electric guitar lines, and grooving handclaps. Lyrically, she pours on the innuendo, dropping “all natural” allusions to getting down in the heat of some sun-soaked summer loving.
“Orange Blossom” rides its soft, 80s-wave influences in less abstract and experimental ways than her Metallic Butterfly-era releases. And although Destiny is rooting this next phase of her creative expression in groove-based music that’s gone before, she doesn’t let sonic nostalgia define her sound, just cast a warm glow around it.
Kick back and enjoy before the long days of summer are gone.
