Reliably informed

A breakbeat worthy of Dilla and an orchestra of abrasive synths set the bedrock for this flawless debut transmission from the enigmatic TAANG. It’s a euphoric and delightfully dark slice of genre-bending wonder, immediately calling to mind the frenetic, anything-goes approach of Young Fathers and TV On The Radio.

As per TAANG, the song explores the thrill of “escaping the person we portray or the profession we perform and being nothing more than a moving body in a dimly lit round”, which is beautifully captured by the hook-laden lyrics and the push-and-pull of the shapeshifting arrangement. It’s an extraordinary release, and I’m excited to see what TAANG has in store next. Essential.
