Lennox. – “Break” ft. Kim Mayo

14 Jan


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.

Listen: Lennox – “Whimsy”

18 Jun


It’s almost ironic really, having bemoaned the weather for not matching the bright and summery sounds of some recent posts, that just as the temperature is beginning to rise and the wind and rain has (mostly) abated, we turn to one of our new favourite purveyors of ice-cool melodies. We’d argue that it is to provide sonic refreshment from the warmth outside, but there’s little point. You didn’t come for weather chat after all (did you?).

Like gentle snowfall under the moonlit sky, the latest offering from New York’s Lennox is a soothing lullaby, hushed and beautiful. Featuring guest vocals from Eitan Akman (as well as being the first track recorded with new guitarist Daniel Hanley), “Whimsy” is a secret walk in the silence of the night, escaping the city and venturing out into the unseen mystical woodland worlds. The synth sounds dance and play amongst the trees as the brushed cymbal beat twinkle like fairies in the sky. You look around in wonder as imagination’s creations come alive and dance soundlessly before your eyes.

It’s a beautiful caressing of your mind that will take it far away from this world and is perfect for some midnight listening, curtains wide open with the world laid out in front of your window.
