Dream pop duo ACER give us a temporary pass to cloud 9 with their new chest-swelling single “Baker St.” It’s a shoegazy pop piece peppered with hip-hop elements that makes it an exquisitely thrill and chill ride as they reflect on the temporary nature of pleasures. “For me, it is a reflection on the present as a future memory, a certain awareness of the ephemeral; and the bittersweet feeling that accompanies that. A combination of gratitude and melancholy for a temporary and temporal pleasure,” explains Kyle Gottschalk of ACER. Hit play:
