SR Track of the Day: Gulf Hymn – ILLUMNTR
The Gramatik-led label Lowtemp is having quite a year, and it’s only getting better. The first official ILLUMNTR track that dropped the other day continues to expound on innovative production styles while introducing new and exciting dimensions of influence and versatility to the Brooklyn-based label. The duo, Bryn Austin Bellomy (lead singer of EXMAG) and guitarist John Russel, will soon be bringing sweaty, passionate beats to a dance party near you.
“Gulf Hymn” steadily creeps through 80s-esque guitar solos, ballad-like vocals, mixtures of trap and R&B, romance, all within a creative and original song structure. Listen and download for free below.
“Hazily flowing through disparate movements of GULF HYMN, we get a ton of looks around a shag carpeted, crushed velvet opium den housing a harem of unkempt cats. Oozing with sensuality and mayhem, this opus is the second single from Soul Sister, due out on Lowtemp in the very near future.” (Source: ILLUMNTR SoundCloud)
