While it's not exactly fair to say the Bird and the Bee were born with the keys to the city in hand, it's probably safe to suggest the Los Angeles duo initially had enough connections and friends in the industry to make things at least a little bit easier. Singer Inara George is the daughter of late Little Feat singer Lowell George, while Greg Kurstin is one of those L.A. session linchpins whose name crops up in credits all over the place. If that combined background didn't earn the duo complete carte blanche, it no doubt got the group a leg up on other virtually out-of-nowhere acts.

I don’t not like pop but this just feels a little too synthetic for me personally, not saying synthetic music is bad, but its syntheticness here kinda pushes me a little away from it. My Love is pretty catchy though.
