Single Serving: 8th Grader – Heavy Without You

I love a good, sexy, 80′s-styled, slow synth-jam. If that sounds like it might fit your groove too, then you’re destined to be a big fan of the San Francico-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist 8th Grader. The man is on a mission to sonically remind you “why falling in love at 13 is the only way to fall.” And he manages just that on his debut single “Heavy Without You.” It’s a smokey, spacious and brightly-lit tune with enough shimmer and sparkle to last for weeks on end. Give it a spin now.
