MP3: deadCAT – “tanlines”


Given their love of grimy funk and skittering beats, I never thought I’d hear deadCAT sound this dreamy and chill, but the duo’s latest single—appropriately titled “tanlines”—is just that. Led by wistful synths and stuttering percussion, the song seems destined to drown in a sea of haze and sun-baked nostalgia, but there’s enough bite in Britt Teusink’s diffuse vocals to keep it from becoming too laid-back and listless. There’s a fluidity here that’s impressive, and the underlying instrumentation seems to reveal new surprises with every listen. It’s not their best effort by any means, but it’s solid nonetheless.
