In these uncertain times, it’s amazing to see some really great artists come together to work on new music. One of the biggest we’ve seen so far has to be the new Avalanches track they’ve finished with not only THE Jamie XX but also Neneh Cherry and CLYPSO involved.
As a part of a two track EP by The Avalanches, this single titled ‘Wherever You Go’ is something that feels equal part in influence from everyone who has been apart of the creative process. On the first listen, it’s very reminiscent of influence from the likes of Joy Orbison and Major Lazer, with the staggered kind of moombahton pace and overall tone. The vocal cuts are fun and the pokey synth really leads the dance-ability of the track.
The visualiser is out of this world.. Literally. A kind of futuristic outer space video to stare at passively while soaking it in.
We really should have seen this coming, considering only just back on May Jamie XX and The Avalanches had done a B2B dj set on NTS radio.
