"God damn grandma why you have to leave right now / Wish that you could see right now / What I'm bout to be right now."
white ceilings is brimming with tracks that are emotive, melancholic, and, most notably, outright infectious. The strength of whiterosemoxie’s debut exhibits his ability to jump between genres without ever expensing or sacrificing quality.
