A little less than a month before the release of their debut LP Modern Animal, the Miami funk trio Magic City Hippies is sharing the new single 'What Would I Do,' which showcases an airier, dreamier side to their sound.

Inspired by the sounds of bossa nova, 'What Would I Do' tackles the age-old question of long-distance love, made all the more difficult when you are a musician traveling across the country. According to the band, the song purposefully conjures images of "summer romance and the often shaky optimism of summer's end," ideas that come across through the song's lovey instrumentation and timeless melody.

You can stream 'What Would I Do' up above. Modern Animal, the debut album from Magic City Hippies, comes out on Aug. 16. The band's upcoming tour dates can be found down below.
