We’ve all heard of Halsey, but have you heard of David Halsey? Better known by his stage name Petticoat this twenty three year old Bay Area songwriter blends the best elements of ’80s new wave and modern club production. Petticoat dropped his debut five-song EP InFormat last year and just today Halsey pulled up the silk to reveal his latest single.
“The Middle” once again finds Petticoat planted equidistant between contemporary electronic and retro synthpop, with Halsey’s robust vocals floating over the bouncing rhythms and delicate arrangements to create something unique, yet perfect for a playlist of vintage stuff or currents.
