After releasing “Balanced” last month, Ictooicy follows with a new single, “Guava Juice”, continuing to her penchant for fusing emotional raps and smooth R&B vocals. The new single finds her singing over a lo-fi piano-led instrumental that sets a laid-back mood for her sultry musings on the healing power of genuine love; “Sometimes I feel like dying but you, you make me feel a certain hunger for your love and I love it so”.
The production on “Guava Juice” is tender, almost aqueous, with rippling keys and steady, pattering percussion. but it’s decidedly low-key, redirecting all focus to Ictooicy’s narration as her lighthearted and drunken vocals fluidly ride the beat to celebrate love.
