We’ve reached lucky No.13 in my #TuesdayTunesday series. This is probably the most consistent weekly posting I have done in about 7 years, so I need a clap for that!
This week I head away from home to not only London, but New York, the setting for SBTRKT’s new song, ‘New Drop. New York’. SBTRKT (pronounced ‘Subtract’) is the pseudonym chosen by Aaron Jerome and he has enlisted the help of Ezra Koenig from ‘Vampire Weekend’ for this tune.
This very private British artist blew the world away with his self-titled debut album in 2011 collaborating with Little Dragon and Jessie Ware on an album that expertly mixed crisp electronica and infectious beats.
He’s done it again with this latest track and added a bass line that sucked me in over a few listens. It’s next level with the beats and the vocal line. Ezra just adds something else with that distinctive voice. If the rest of the album is anything like this, it will be a cracker!
An animated video clip has been released today for this song and the album should be out later tonight. CHECKIT!
