Wait / South Congress
Stunning debut R&S release from Airhead. Breathtaking, minimalist abstractions, fusing shoegazey electronica with post-dubstep stylings. Introduced to us after a collaboration with James Blake on Ramp, this is still only his second solo release showcasing his impressive skills as a musician and producer.
Acoustic guitar laden "Wait" has a heartbreaking, thought-provoking vibe similar to the XX, beautifully spacious and slow burning. Whilst "South Congress" builds to epic climax with emotive piano keys, floaty electronics and rocky guitar.
