18 year old English newcomer Rex Orange County leaves us in mellow bliss with his dulcet gliding second single, Best Friend. Zane Lowe chose the song for his World Record on Beats 1 just last week, a sure indication of the indelible impression the young talent is already making with his music. Best Friend is Rex Orange County’s ode to that ever pervasive, commonly lamented problem of being friendzoned. Despite the poignancy of this situation, Rex Orange County has managed to create a light hearted, sweetly endearing tribute. This breezy chic, jazzy flittering amalgam of soul, pop, and indie rock is like a dreamy mixture of Tom Misch and Frank Ocean. It’s reported that Two Inch Punch, Tyler the Creator, and BADBADNOTGOOD are massive fans of Rex Orange County. In fact, he’s currently working on some music with BADBADNOTGOOD. It probably doesn’t need to be said, but expect big things to come.
