Luminous Kid has teamed up with Phoebe Bridgers to deliver a magical song called “Mountain Crystals.” The lyrics are about not being certain if you are awake or dreaming. We’ve all been there! The instrumentation and delivery style gives the song a psychedelic vibe that comes across peacefully.
The songs instrumentation style is laid back while vocals rhyme quickly on top but in a relaxed fashion. Luminous Kid’s vocals are very relaxed throughout the song even for the catchy chorus hook. Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t sing a verse on the track but instead delivers a spoken word poem.
My personal favorite part of the instrumentation is the horn section which creates a young and free feeling. Check out the music video on YouTube now:
Fun Fact: Luminous Kid and Phoebe Bridgers first collaborated when Olof Grind (Luminous Kid) shot the cover for Phoebe Bridgers 2020 album Punisher. The album shoot required a road trip which allowed enough time for the two to become friends and get inspired by the scenery to write this song.
