‘Please Stay in Love with Me’ by Kicksie is chilled-out female-driven indie rock with a sad, straightforward approach. “Everything you hear is done by me and me alone,” this apparently tri-instrumental artist says of her work. There’s a slow, dreamy sensibility on here that seems reminiscent of shoegaze, but at the same time there’s a clarity on here that really fights that. In spite of that contradiction, it seems like some parallels can be drawn between this and a lot of Jessica Lea Mayfield’s work. Of course, this can also be understood as kind of an offshoot of the Soccer Mommy sound. Regardless, it’s a miserably satisfying little track and a strong showing from an impressive solo project.
