The brother-sister duo of Paperwhite have released their third single to date in "Take Me Back", a lush and elegant dream-pop track abundant with bouncy synths and drum lines courtesy of producer Ben Marshall.

It's been nearly a year since the release of Tobias Jesso Jr.'s debut single/demo, and it appears he and former Girls bassist-turned-producer Chet "JR" White are nearing closer and closer to a substantial project for the singer-songwriter. With "True Love", Jesso Jr. expounds upon his disconnected bedroom aesthetic that he effortlessly has going for him, relying on a sole piano riff to elevate his vocals into a range of lucidity that prompts a naturally ethereal soundscape. While little is known about the artist, there's an air of undeniable likability in the soft-spoken and honest nature of his short-yet-substantial releases thus far that is refreshing, familiar, and comforting all at once. There is no word on a proper release yet, but listen to "True Love" above.
