“Feel away” is an exciting new collaboration from a trio of UK artists, consisting of rapper slowthai, revered musician James Blake, and indie electronic duo Mount Kimbie. This is a unique and somewhat unexpected group of collaborators, but the sound they’ve come up with for this track is captivating and flat out pretty.
The song starts out with a thoughtful slowthai verse on top of a simple and catchy piano melody. On the hook, a strong rhythm kicks in, fitting in perfectly between the piano strokes. As expected, singer James Blake’s soulful and introspective vocal ties the track together beautifully. We can’t forget about Mount Kimbie, who have left their mark on the production end with their signature minimal style on a clean sounding instrumental.
This release is yet another big collaboration from the ascending UK rap star, who has collaborated with Disclosure for “My High” and Gorillaz for “Momentary Bliss” this year in addition to a few of his own releases.
