Basenji is definitely a quality over quantity kind of guy. He’s teased us with his release of “Heirloom” last year (one of our recommended songs for a ‘1 minute dance party’) and a delightful Sable remix, but after about a nine month wait he has finally released another original track, and good lord is it a beauty.
“Petals” features the ethereal vocals of Adam Tucker from Perth band Scenic and Basenji’s production, which is so careful and composed that it’s like a breath of spring in winter – you can drift off in its simple prettiness. But don’t take my word for, enchant your ears right now:
“Heirloom” is Basenji’s first release after signing with Future Classic last year, and you can hear how polished his tracks have been since, which is why we just can’t wait for the release of his upcoming EP. Bring it on!
