SBTRKT ft. Sampha ‘Temporary View’ (Official Video)
Elasticising rigid synths and pulling them down to all different tonal lengths, ‘Temporary View’ makes quite a loud and proud entry. Momentarily slimming this element down to a softer melody, it collaborates with a group of young, twinkling samples, a slow beat and the opacity of notes that are hit rather heavily to conclude the song.
With a fresh environment attained as a result of the ample instrumentation, a generous dash of emotive power is too present, thanks to the esteemed vocals of Sampha, as he governs ‘Temporary View’ with his incredible depth and ridiculously large capacity; allowing us insight into the personal terrain that tells the story of the song that is so perfectly summarised by the title of the track.
Visually coupled with a powder blue vapour clouding over a beast-like figurine, the close of ‘Temporary View’ transforms it’s dreamy face for the expected worse, as a red filter beams over the soft space, flashing warning and promoting change.
Following up the release of his Transitions EP, SBTRKT is said to be working on his second full-length album. With very little detail on that, keep an eye out for further information in the not-too-distant future!
