With the mid-tempo Afro-Caribbean sonic aesthetic LA Powers produces, and their languidly catchy melodies, the atmosphere Fasina and Bella Alubo curate with their joint “Your Way (Long Time)” single, more or less comprises a house party and plenty of booze. The mood gains some substance, though, with their lyrics coming off like two people finally linking up after being extensively acquainted via social media, then deciding to share their paranoia somewhere in the corner of the party. “Your Way” is an interesting example of dark subject matter being sneaked into a seemingly superficial song.
