Hot on the heels of ex-bandmate and ex-partner Dave Longstreth’s latest, self-titled Dirty Projectors album, Amber Coffman is poised to confidently assert herself as a pop-music creator. As Vulture previously reported, Longstreth worked on Coffman’s forthcoming album with her, post-relationship; later the two further parted ways (Coffman called it “an unfortunate downturn”). As of this writing, they are not friends, which is a shame, because if they were, they could talk about how great this track “No Coffee” turned out — it’s a little ray of pop-tinted sunshine that sounds like that first summertime patio drink feels. Take a listen, and bide your time until Coffman’s record, City of No Reply, is released later this year.
