Kicking off with Bird Feeder, a very polished tune with simple melodies and a clear beat the album continues building the path with Tinlicker’s remix of alt-J Breezeblocks. A soft arpeggio that perfectly matches the vocal and the almost pop-oriented vibes. The Whale, number three of the album, brings the listener to a deeper and darker environment, with yet clean but mysterious sounds. On the same key Vanishingft. Run Rivers introduces a more club-oriented baseline at the end of the tune. Even if the track title could mislead, The Walkis a true club anthem built for the deeper and underground dancefloors. The buildup is simply amazing and we can definitely feel the crowd going crazy when the track drops.
We’re both fans of alt-J. We had the idea of creating a completely different and unique vibe from the original, and the track has been a highlight in our sets over the past months. We are also very happy that alt-J themselves were happy for us to release this version. – Tinlicker
