“Super Natural (feat. Carly Rae Jepsen)”
The hipster’s general consensus for Carly Rae Jepsen may be confusing and polarizing: “Is it cool to like Carly Rae Jepsen now that she’s criminally underrated? Should we just bandwagon?” They may make fair point: the transformation of Carly Rae Jepsen from the soft-pedaled bubblegum pop princess of “Call Me Maybe” to queen of Pitchfork Music Festival is truly an interesting case study. In just one masterpiece album, Emotion, a true homage of 80’s pop songs, Jepsen can turn the table. Before she releases the side B of Emotion, Jepsen teases her collaboration with British music producer, Danny L. Harle. “Super Natural.”
The true star of “Super Natural” is of course Harle, one of PC Music’s producers, the member of Dux Alliance with A. G. Cook. It’s already a recipe of amazingness. Long fan of Jepsen, when Harle asks Jepsen to fill the vocal for “Super Natural”, it’s a dream comes true, and “Super Natural” lengthens the streak of Jepsen’s superb songs. It’s no surprise when you listen to Harle’s sick beat, it reminds you of A. G. Cook’s work, with its twinkling beat and multilayered 80’s synth. Jepsen is the perfect choice to fill the vocal, as her voice twirls between Harle’s irresistible beat (and quirky charming smile). “Super Natural” describes an effortlessly matching couple, that’s perfectly meant for each other, and in some other ways, it’s exactly what’s this collaboration is.
