A month ago, I wrote about the fantastic Bamboo Smoke track, Are You Awake?, and the song really resonated with me. Signed to the Swedish boutique label Something Beautiful, they’re not the only brilliant act on the roster. Once again, I’ve found myself in the fortunate position to be premiering a single that I love. What might that be you ask? Well, reader, it’s Walk It Off by London/New York duo Hugh.
Walk It Off is immediately impressive as the dual vocal harmony slips into your ears, offering solid and sultry tones before you’ve had a chance to prepare. Before you know it, you’re on an industrial, psychedelic synth rollercoaster. If you were to press play and skip to the end, you’d probably be asking yourself how the hell the track got from A to B. The only way to experience this fantastic journey is to embrace the song and let it take you upstream.
The contribution of Canadian duo Bonjay is a masterstroke, showing that collaborations can produce some of the best music out there. While listening to Walk It Off, I got an intense desire to see it performed live. It’s already powerful in a pair of headphones, so could you imagine hearing it blasted through giant speakers? One day, I’ll make sure to catch them. For now, I’m going to keep pressing play and wait until that moment.
