Welcome to day 13 of our Advent Calendar series, offering up a free download each day in the run up to Christmas.
Today’s track comes all the way from Adelaide, Australia by new name on the block Lonelyspeck aka Sione Bouts Teumohenga. Part of the London-based PLZ Make It Ruins label headed by STW favourite Vegyn, ‘Given’ is the fourth track off Sione’s woozy future-R&B Presence EP that dropped last month. In-keeping with the label’s ‘Soy-Based’ vibe (first coined by avid-fan James Blake on his BBC radio residency earlier on in the year), the track wraps a bubbling fizz around spacey vocals and warm chords that gives off a wayward nostalgic fragrance so airy it will almost make you float. A perfect soundtrack for today’s sunny-but-bloody-freezing conditions.
You can purchase the full EP on CD & digi over on the PLZ Make It Ruins Bandcamp, and keep updated with all things Lonelyspeck via the links below:
