The Range, the project of Vermont-based producer James Hinton, has returned with a new single called ‘Bicameral’. Check out its accompanying visual, directed by Stevie Gee and Essy May, below.
“’Bicameral’ represents the beginning of a move into a more ethereal space in my music,” Hinton explained in a statement about the track, which follows his 2016 LP Potential as well as collaborations with Tourist, Yaeji, and Jim-E Stack. “I began working on it while on a retreat in Nicaragua in 2016, and finished it in 2020 in Vermont, and so it uniquely captures a lot of the extreme positive and negative memories over that time. In this song the original vocal – a song called ‘The Roa’” by the Eritrean singer Bemnet Tekleyohannes – is “When you lighten” but I like that the interpretation of “When you lied – when you lied to me” is equally readable as the phrase repeats and changes.”
