If you’ve been keeping up with TSIS over the past year, you know we’ve become big fans of Whethan. Ever since we introduced him to the site for his debut original single “Can’t Hide”, the 18-year-old producer has continued to impress on some fantastic collaborations with the likes of Charli XCX, Mascolo, Elohim and of course, Oliver Tree. Today he’s continued his streak of incredible releases with a brand new single, “Aftertaste” featuring the exciting rising group Opia.
Featuring some production and vocals from Connecticut-based group Opia (who you may recognize from their recent collabs with Ekali and Louis Futon), we’ve quickly realized that Whethan and Opia sound awesome together. While this latest offering starts off slow with some delicate, emotional vocals it doesn’t take long for some soulful piano and distant bells to quickly throw the track into a powerful chorus filled with skittering percussion, funky guitar and bouncy, distorted bass. Whethan is heading on European tour with Louis The Child early next year, see dates below. Enjoy!
