A vintage warmth emanates from Teddy Swim’s soul. “dose” takes cues from classic ‘60s pop music, from the scratchy jingle-jangle to the curling of his upper register. “Love how you kiss every tattoo on my face / Yeah, it’s the time and place,” he sings with a playful smirk. “To do what the doctor say, a dose of you a day / Pop more than what I need, the perks of being a fiend.” There’s even finger-snaps dressing up the musicality; it’s unapologetically a throwback, and it fits his voice like a leather glove.
