LISTEN: Cashmere Cat ‘Aurora’
Dark electro with a cow bell – this is the new track from CASHMERE CAT ‘Aurora’. Where ‘Mirror Maru’ was uptempo, drumrolled house, this is more minimalist and sombre in tone.
A lone beat kicks into ominous synth, and heavy gongs slice up the dirge. It features a killer drum line which is used to glorious effect, overcast by a foreboding synth.
Where his earlier work included remixes of the likes of DRAKE and LANA DEL REY, there are no pop hooks here. ‘Aurora’ is definitely one for the boys in the audience.
