Van Plating’s voice is rustic in nature ─ something ethereal with a raspy tinge. “I ain’t nothin’ / But I’m feelin’ cool,” sings Plating. In passing through a downard emotional state, almost dream-like and nightmarish, the singer-songwriter lets herself feel whatever it is she may feel on the way.
Drums pound in sharp waves, glistening and burning. And Van Plating simply tosses her hands in the air and lets the emotions crash across her skin. “Are you feeling cool?” she ponders. It’s a rhetorical inquiry, but it’ll never leave our mind.
