Here’s another single from Illumntr, in anticipation of what will surely be a legendary #Lowtemp performance at Red Rocks tomorrow. “Beyond Say” sifts through those signature, intoxicatingly silky Illumntr vocals, ’80s-esque keys, and tastefully placed guitar licks. The progression is truly unique; although the vocals hold down the track, the instrumental is constantly changing. The cloud of soaring synths drip with reverb, then make way for sexy basslines, and then more guitar effects, all of it perfectly complementing the suave vocals that define this duo’s unique, R&B-tinged deep space gospel. I hope Beyonce notices this quasi shout out. I’m sure she and Jay Z would get down to some electro-soul at Red Rocks.
This morphing track is the perfect feel-good start to your weekend. Snag a free download below.
