Few are doing the whole folk/soul thing quite like Ali McGuirk is. "X Boyfriends" sounds like vintage soul with a modern spin. McGuirk's vocals are on full display. She's a formidable talent without ever having to get overly showy like so many modern soul and R&B singers tend to. Despite having a vintage sound, "X Boyfriends" doesn't sound like a throwback. This is pure classic soul that still sounds current and modern. This is truly what sets McGuirk apart from so many of her peers in the genre.
Ali McGuirk says of her new song:
“This song could be interpreted as a song of longing, but I think of it more as a song that looks back on past loves with fondness, appreciating the good things they brought to be and recognizing my life’s own enoughness without them."
