In the age of the infinite scroll, any occasion to slow down merits praise, but Ictooicy does so with purpose. Her catalogue of releases like “Devil Wears Prada”, “Guava Juice” and her latest ‘Majic’ tape has the lo-fi sounds that encourage listeners to be more chill. Her latest song titled, simply “Serenity”, does so through a relatable romantic narrative and the lightweight lo-fi beat she lifted off YouTube.
While the song narrates how love can provoke some unpleasant emotions, she sings soothingly, layering her voice over the synth piece, singing “We can take it slow tonight”. The implication is intuitive. The more you’re willing to pause and take in your surroundings, the richer your experiences can be. The details are more vibrant, the colours more full, romance, less tasking.
