TRACK REVIEW: Slobo & Azere – Moonbeams | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

This slowly unfurling track of gentle guitar strumming and poetic vocals meanders through its three minutes like a ghost wandering the grounds of some ancient estate. There’s also an evocative romanticism at the heart of the musical tones, a dreamy scene setting that makes the music seem like some invocation to the wild or subconscious. The breakdown of vocals into a jumble of snipped conversations towards the end is briefly unsettling, but then amusing, as it pulls you out of the bucolic haze.

Moonbeams is pulled from an EP of seven tracks due for release in July that mixes folk, downtempo, breakbeat and even Indian ragas, combining Slobo & Azere’s mixed musical loves and inspirations into one cohesive space together.
