As she grooves over to the hook, Rora Wilde bounces through lyrics like "Don't let me let you go," referencing how someone needs to decide if they're in or out. Wilde brings a ton of energy and passion to her lyrics, and we're definitely here for the ride. All in all, the song keeps our heads bopping with soothing production and Wilde's harmonious vocal layers that feel like a fresh blanket out of the dryer.
