Sibling duo Border Scout release their brand new single Game & Watch today, with the gloriously slow burning instrumental track proving to be something immensely dark and complex that showcases their knack for deliberate, captivating builds.
Drawing on influences like Massive Attack and Clint Mansell, their orchestral-electronica is a real slice of something different, as they force a listener to grow into a track as the track grows with them. The impact isn’t instant, and listening to them really benefits from that. Spoken word samples add something too to a piece centred on the loss of innocence, and it builds to an epic, engrossing climax. This twinkling track is a real stand-out from the talented pair.
