After a six-year hiatus, SBTRKT has been busy in 2022, churning out new releases. His fourth single, “FORWARD,” just dropped, and it sees him reuniting with “GHOST” vocalist LEILAH.
This new track continues the same emotional, dark tone we heard on “GHOST.” “FORWARD” seems to be meant to be listened to immediately after; the melancholy piano that closes out “GHOST” takes a lead role in “FORWARD.” These haunting keystrokes mingle with LEILAH’s impassioned vocals, creating an echoing soundscape. Undercurrents of poignant synth come to the surface as the song draws to a close. They are joined by jazz percussion as the song fades, further solidifying the blue vibe of the tune.
The cohesiveness of all of SBTRKT’s recent releases points to a very strong upcoming album, which we’ll have more info on very soon.
Make sure to check out “FORWARD” below. Enjoy!
