It blows my mind Chris Housman hasn’t been signed to a label yet. That’s sadly just indicative of the industry these days. Great talent falls by the wayside. But I digress. With “Laid Back,” Housman offers up a breezy, summer reprieve. “Wave by wave, our troubles float away,” he sings. Whistles drip into the arrangement, featuring an airy, easy-going melody that slithers into the eardrums. “Yeah, because we don’t need that / Keep it laid back,” he adds. If you’re aching to get away from the news, pull yourself away from your phone and put “Laid Back” on repeat. You’ll thank me later.
