It’s brilliant, so I thought I’d bring you my favourite track from the record, the dream-inducing “Heart Shaped Locket”. Sampling vocals from R&B stars Ne-Yo and Beyoncé, it is a testament to this guy’s aptitude at production – what at first may seem as a simple and minimalistic track quickly evolves into one which oozes sensuous and visceral beauty. Intricate melodies layer over one another effortlessly, and that soothing guitar pattern adds yet another dimension to this piece of art.
I could get even more teary-eyed about this song, but I’ll let you judge for yourself. Advice from me is to listen with headphones, secluded from the outside world. Then you’ll feel the music’s ultimate power.
Bloody well love this song.
