Ace Clark and Kota the Friend can’t ignore the “Red Flags”

Ace Clark teams up with Kota the Friend for this new heartfelt track titled “Red Flags”. The record talks about two men who just can’t pick the right woman and they get sucked into a world of a never-ending cycle of emotional turmoil which is a weird way they seem to enjoy because old habits die hard. Bolstered by a soulful piano riff and punchy drum groove, the duo reflects on a handful of past relationships they have been in and how crazy the person they were dealing with was a bit off the ledge. The lyrics are evocative, and vivid and I am extremely certain that many men can relate to it.
