LISTEN: Disclosure ‘You & Me’ (Feat Eliza Doolittle)
On the back of the extremely exciting details they released the other day regarding their debut album, everyone’s favourite UK bass duo, DISCLOSURE are back with single number 3. Yes, that’s right. The album’s only just been announced and there are already 3 singles.
Once again, the duo are taking some simple sound and textures and building something special, as ‘You & Me’ is as silky smooth as you can get. Continuing the vibe of their previous works, subtle bass and swirling synths are placed behind basic percussion to create a flowing minimalistic dance track. They have also gone and enlisted another crooning vocalist to become the forefront of the track and bring some serious power to something so light and airy.
For ‘You & Me’ the vocals fall upon the shoulders of fellow country(wo)man – Eliza Doolittle. She’s a tad older than the brothers, but her voice holds the weight you’d expect from a super experienced soul singer. As she broodingly smashes her verses, you understand that her voice is the perfect vessel – that all of the above sounds and samples just wouldn’t have worked without the raw emotion she provides.
It doesn’t seem to fall far from the tree of other Bass visionaries, in particular, TEED‘s 2012 throwback ‘Your Love’. And even though it isn’t the freshest sounds to come out of their stable, it’s new Disclosure and you really can’t argue with that.
As previously stated, Disclosure‘s debut LP is due out May 31. So sit tight ladies and gentlemen.
