With an undeniable groove that smashes together some bass octaves and live drumming, Deep Sea Arcade brings another slinky hit to the party. A little bit of shuffle; some horological back-and-forth; and a lead vocal from Nic Mckenzie that floats with a hooky melody in a pristine mix.
It’s infectious and hummable, featuring a stripped-down verse and washy chorus, with that touch of swing that makes all the difference between machine pocket and human imprint. It’s a dreamy buildup of layers over a simple theme, with an impressive sonic execution and a casual-cool vocal style that hints of glam-rock and pure, effortless pop.
Deep Sea Arcade is a Trip-Hop group from Sydney. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
