Put SG Lewis in the studio with a talented vocalist and you know the result will be a hit. The UK-based producer and instrumentalist has previously teamed up with stunning singers such as AlunaGeorge, Drew Love of THEY., and Gallant to craft vibrant tracks that mix influence from dance, R&B, and hip-hop. Now SG is back with another collaboration with singer-songwriter Clairo called “Throwaway”. The first time that these two linked up they created the uplifting funky dance tune “Better” off the first part of SG Lewis’s three-part album Dusk.
“Throwaway” takes a melancholy tone that appears to be the theme of Dawn, the last installment of SG’s three-part album. The song begins with a tranquil melody that evokes thoughts of childhood with its playful synths, quickly fading as Clairo’s lush vocals take center stage. Warm bass, subtle snares, and bouncy keyboard instrumentals all ebb and flow behind Clairo emotive voice, creating a comforting yet sad soundscape. Enjoy!
