New Music Tuesday! Oh wait, they do that thing on Fridays now...anyways I'm excited to bring you the premiere of the third original single from Hypercolor. The latest of Grant Wheeler and Matthew Young's various projects—which include Body Language, Vacationer, and Xan Young to name a few—Hypercolor draws inspiration from what's most exciting about modern production, citing influences such as Flume and Mura Masa. Those may sound like big names for comparison, but these guys live up to the hype.
"Ghosts" follows up on the success of the duo's first two originals, "Pretty" and "Animal", and is another stellar display of production chops and emotion. With the help of vocalist Kora Leva, "Ghosts" brings a more pop-infused tinge to the duo's progressive sound. It begins with strummed playful chords and light percussive sounds, slowly building through the first verse and chorus into more energetic luscious synths, chopped vocal samples, and snappy drums. I think it may be my favorite thus far from the guys, but with the consistency in quality we've seen from them already, there's little doubt they'll be slowing down anytime soon.
