Billie Eilish - Ocean Eyes (Astronomyy Edit)

This girl is 14. Yup. While you process the fact that Billie Eilish was probably born in 2002***, let us also applaud her wise song-crafting skills. "Ocean Eyes" seems like it could have been made by someone much older (or in this case, someone who was alive when NSYNC was still together). There's a tranquil and shimmery quality to her voice that kind of reminds me of Young Summer. Accompanied by this chilled out production,we have a freakin ambient masterpiece on our hands. Props to Astronomyy for his hand here. The original is great, but his edit lets the track build steadily, culminating with a bunch of instruments Garage Band noises I have no educational background to actually name. But it sounds amazing! Rock on girl! And also, graduate middle school.
