First Listen: Midtown Social shines on "Play Your Game"

(February 25, 2020) These days when folks think about San Francisco, the word that comes to mind is “high.” That might not seem like much of a change from the Height-Ashbury days when folks elevated their minds during the Summer of Love.

These days the words that follow high are usually “tech” and “rent.” As Silicon Valley creates more and more billionaire the qualities that made The City By the Bay the topic of and the location for such much music can sometimes be hard to find.

However, there are still bands making music in San Francisco, and the funk band Midtown Social is doing the work to continue providing the city with its soundtrack. Midtown Social is preparing to release their new album, Fantastic Colors, but in the meantime the band has dropped several singles with the latest, the seductively funky, “Play Your Game.”

“Play Your Game” is a sleek number where the rhythm section lays down an old-school funk foundation and vocalist Kisura Nyoto has her eye squarely on a guy in the club. She straight up wants to know what it will take to get him out of his shell and ready to spend a little time with her. Check out this fun and funky story of role reversal here.
