ELEANOR KINGSTON / ILIKEGIRLS

I’VE BEEN BUSY. I’VE ALSO BEEN STOKED AS FUCK TO WRITE ABOUT THIS SONG SINCE THE FIRST LISTEN. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. ELEANOR KINGSTON IS A BEAST AND MARK MY WORDS.. SHE’S GOT ONE. THIS SONG COULD NOT COME AT A MORE FITTING MOMENT, CONSIDERING IT IS PRIDE MONTH.. LET’S TALK ABOUT IT.

I’VE BEEN TRACKING ON ELEANOR SINCE HER BROTHER – THE NOTORIOUSLY BALLSY AND UNAFRAID OF SEEMINGLY ANYTHING: BUPPY – FIRST PUT HER ON MY RADAR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO. SINCE THEN, I’VE BEEN WATCHING FROM A BIRDS EYE VIEW. ABOUT A MONTH AGO, I HEARD ELEANOR’S LATEST OFFERING, THE PRESCIENTLY-TITLED “ILIKEGIRLS” IN DEMO FORM. IMMEDIATELY, I REACHED OUT, SOLEMNLY IMPRESSED.. AS WELL AS GRATITUDE FOR HER VULNERABILITY. THE FEELINGS EVOKED OFF OF THAT FIRST DOPAMINE-INDUCED LISTEN REMAIN STRONG AS EVER A MONTH LATER.

“I LIKE GIRLS…”

PRODUCED BY JARED EVAN, “ILIKEGIRLS” SOUNDS LIKE IT SHOULD BE FEATURED IN AN EPISODE OF EUPHORIA. A COMING OUT PARTY OF SORTS, ELEANOR SOARS WITH A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF CONFIDENCE AND CERTAINTY THAT I’M CONVINCED EVEN GRISELDA BLANCO HERSELF WOULD WANT NO SMOKE. THIS SONG IS EVERYTHING. A PANACEA FOR OUR GENERATION, WHICH CONTINUES TO DISCOVER THAT WE ARE IN FACT MORE FLUID..AND RIGHTFULLY SO. IT TOOK ME 3 OR 4 AYAHUASCA SITS IN THE AMAZON – THE RAINFOREST, NOT LEX LUTHOR’S COMPANY – TO FINALLY MAKE PEACE WITH THE EVERLASTING CONFLICTIONS OF BEING BI-SEXUAL I FELT. ELEANOR KICKED THOSE FUCKING WALLS DOWN IN 2 MINUTES AND 26 SECONDS FLAT. I COULD TALK ABOUT THE SONG WAY MORE.. THE INSTRUMENTATION.. HOW I SWEAR UP AND DOWN THAT THIS IS A HIT RECORD, JUST WAITING TO BLOW UP ON TIKTOK. HOWEVER, THAT SIMPLY WOULD BE DISRESPECTFUL TO YOU.. THE LISTENER. RUN THIS SHIT UP AND DON’T FORGET TO LOVE YOURSELF. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL EXACTLY THE WAY YOU ARE.
