“When we wrote this super cheesy jam I really wanted to lean into just how soft my edges have gotten over the years. I decided to sing about what it’s like being the worlds most #1 tenderest boy, me. One of the verses I wrote was too goofy so we decided to dive into that by tossing it at the end and dropping the speed of the record to make it sound ridiculous. We laughed at the end of each take and decided to just keep them in the final mix.”
Floral Couches is the sexy solo moniker of Chicago musician and songwriter Cody Gray. The lofi, soft-rock pop impingements of thoughts drizzle down from the ice-cream cone of delectability. And it oozes in ‘Tender’.
With Joey Pep’s vocals cheerfully panning on a slice of feelings, the single is effervescent in its delightful charm. With r&b/soul as the frame, Cody’s eclectic renaissance of taste, fly over the state of grace with beauty and a tongue-in-cheek wink at the twists of existence. Not too harsh and never excessive, ‘Tender’ fills your begotten chaos and let’s you chill for a moment.
You needed that.
