Sound Selection 112: Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, The Habits, Kowloon

Bonobo & Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs ‘Heartbreak’

The latest collaboration includes the electronic-phenom Bonobo and the superb Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. In their throwback-filled track ‘Heartbreak’, the household names of electronic music decided to take it back and pay tribute to the disco scene in New York City over the ’70s and ’80s. In terms of production, we hear a lot of raw drum samples mixed with melodious synths and delay-filled vocal samples that pull us back in time, making it perfect for the weekend.

The Habits ‘Amelia’

The Habits, an up-and-coming alt/pop duo comprised of singer and guitarist Wolf Bradley and drummer Andrew Macatrao, have revealed their latest single ‘Amelia’ — just yesterday. The single marks the first song from their forthcoming EP What’s The Worst That Could Happen

‘Amelia’ is a catchy piece of music that is potent to the listener with its ear-pleasing melody and easy to absorb lyrics. Whilst from the outside, the production sounds delightful, the songs melancholic side can be quite mood-altering.

Kowloon ‘Come Over’

‘Come Over’ by Kowloon, a singer-songwriter out of Los Angeles, California, is one of the more irresistible pieces to come out this year. With a minimal production that thrives on prominent vocals, we are taken in from the get-go with the sharp beat of the song. Kowloon’s ability to use subtle elements to elevate the mood of the song is something to take note of too; in fact, it shows maturity from an artist whose first release ‘Walk With Me’ came out just earlier this year.
