The moon in Pisces has been causing all sorts of chaos as this week comes to a dramatic end. Before you disconnect and go completely off the grid, you have to give CASTLEBEAT a spin. Better known as Josh Hwang, the DIY artist makes dreamy batches of lo-fi bedroom pop tunes while running his cassette label Spirit Goth. Today, we’re premiering his latest single “Telephone” featuring his girlfriend, Sonia Gadhia on vocals.

“I don’t really know what I’m doing,” Hwang told us in an email. “I just wanted to capture the simple feelings of young love through an innocent pop song.”

Back in March, CASTLEBEAT dropped his sophomore album VHS, the follow-up to his self-titled debut LP. Stay tuned for more from this artists on the rise and float away to his sweet jam below.
