It’s been a little while since we last heard from trans-American act Lennox and while we’re not sure if their proximity situation has improved (they all lived in different locations in the States), their music keeps getting better.
Featuring Kim Mayo, their new track “Break” is a subdued and subtle beauty. The muted bassline gently ebbs, bobbing like a raft on a tide of sparse and tender synths. There are delicate r’n’b influences in there and the vocals are sweet, sultry and swirly. Understated and superb, the whole thing has a feeling of a near deserted dancehall, a dimmed spotlight on the singer as she sways slightly, holding the mic close as a lover as her vocals gently float to the floor. Before her a solitary couple dance, barely moving they focus instead on their embrace as the beat tiptoes around them.
It’s a gorgeous track and one that has been on steady repeat all morning, take a listen below and prepare to sway.
