On “Automatic”, the overlapping of modern-day R&B and ’60s guitars and drums is nearly as mesmerizing as the “babe” Spencer.’s singing about. “Always/ You’ve been running round my mind all night babe,” he croons. “Leaving me feeling hypnotized the right way.”
Check it out below via its official video, directed by Danica Arias Kleinnecht. “Automatic” is said to be off a larger forthcoming project that’s due out 2020.
