It’s curious to think that this is only the second time that RAC and St. Lucia are collaborating. Both artists share much more than just indie-synth darling status: with an ear for a catchy hook, a strong affinity for warm synthesizer tones and bombastic drums, and a deep appreciation for Paul Simon’s Graceland, it was about time they partnered up again. Considering their shared musical sensibilities and the success of their first song together, 2014’s “Ready For It,” we were well overdue for another track.

Luckily for us, Andre (RAC) and Jean (St. Lucia) got back in the studio and blessed us with “The Beautiful Game” — a strong early contender for this summer’s ubiquitous poolside-pop anthem. With a simple, uplifting melody and subtly nuanced instrumentation, it’s a guaranteed mood boost — the perfect song to start your day/a road trip/fight fascism. Check it out below in the latest iteration of Spotify’s curated “Indie Pop!” playlist; fittingly, it’s the first track.
