Today’s feature comes from an artist who we’ve always had a lot of love and respect for at I OH YOU; and that is Devonte Hynes AKA Blood Orange. This track, featuring Caroline Polachek of Chairlift fame, is a pop song at it’s heart. It employs a minimalistic feel whereby surging airey percussion, washed out synths and softly sung vocals are all used in tandem with space to create a feeling of complete and utter unity amongst the sum of the elements. The video has a clear pairing with the warm and wistful vibes running through the song. The tropical theme works perfectly to set the scene as the combination of Hynes’ dance moves and brilliant cinematography take control amidst the mid-tempo affair which slowly builds into a decidedly more classical sounding piece than we’ve heard yet from the forthcoming LP.
