We're here for that shimmery lap steel. 

 
 
 

Ahead of Myself
X Ambassadors

Bravo X Ambassadors, apologizing has never felt this satisfying before.

We are treated to cavernous buzzy synths, tweaking drum machines, sweetly distorted and deep vocals, and that signature Annie Clark guitar feel. Ear candy with complexity.
