Quick Thoughts: This is probably the first you're hearing about CRITTER, but it definitely won’t be the last. CRITTER, the alternative pop duo consisting of producer Jake Weinberg and singer Quinn Barnitt, dropped their debut single last week. PFC has the perfect level of groove and pop that’ll leave you craving more. Weinberg’s production is incredible, and the pulsating beat joined by Barnitt’s velvety voice is absolutely addicting. CRITTER is unquestionably unique and feels no shame about it when Barnitt sings, “I’m not that pretty / But I’m pretty fuckin’ cool, so fuck it.” This carefree, raw, unapologetically confident energy is exactly what we need to hear more of.
CRITTER is new to the scene, but they sound like they are creating a brand new wave. We don’t know what vibe they’re going to encompass just yet, but I’m thinking an alt Halsey voice meets Dua Lipa groove. Stay on the lookout for CRITTER, you won’t want to miss their next move. Stream on Spotify:
