Today we have the pleasure of introducing a new artist duo with our latest premiere. The Toronto-based duo aiwake have expertly blended relaxing electronic production with lush R&B vocals for their new single “Palm City” out via Majestic Casual, who always seem to impress us. The melodic downtempo production pairs with a slightly gritty static giving the song a deep soundscape for the vocals to float atop. We’re loving this new single and looking forward to hearing what these two have coming. Enjoy!
“The rushing, burning and evolving synth work is driven by an off kilter bounce made as a moving backdrop for the metaphoric lyrics and ambient vocal. The song is an exploration into the peaks and valleys of having short intense relationships, while feeling lonely in a crowd. The emotions that accompany such an experience are often hard to read as two people dance around concepts of flow and commitment. Hope, intrigue, wistfulness; these feelings rush around with a large dose of uncertainty at the core. Peering through the noise, it is usually the case that both parties involved are much closer to being on the same page than either can truly comprehend.” - aiwake
