James Mantis was one of my favorite finds of 2020 and he’s finally here with his first solo single of 2021. “THE COST OF LIVING” comes as a new single off his forthcoming debut EP and this really builds upon James’ immersive sound. This feels retro, psychedelic indie pop song with a hypnotic hook that will just stick in your brain. The lyrics hit a little close to home right now, as I have a close friend moving to Austin as I type this and I feel the need to send him the Spotify link for this one without any other context.
