Got A Girl, the collaborative project between actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dan ‚ÄúThe Automator‚ÄĚ Nakamura, might seem like it came out of nowhere, but it really didn‚Äôt. The pair crossed paths working on 2010‚Äôs Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, with the pair discovering they were both influenced by ‚Äė60s French pop, girl group soul, and lush arrangements. The two started writing together, with Nakamura‚Äôs beats and instrumentation becoming a lovely base for Winstead‚Äôs breezy vocals.

Below, A.V. Club readers can get an exclusive listen to ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs A Revolution,‚ÄĚ the new single off the pair‚Äôs new LP, I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now, out July 22 on Bulk Recordings. It‚Äôs an airy confection, pure, sweet, and perfect for summer.
