Whilk and Misky – Rain Dance
Growling vocals and a steady organic backbeat define Whilk and Misky’s latest effort. The AM Only supported duo are representative of a new type of house artists, ones who shrug at the use of synthesizers and instead opt for in-house vocals and real instrumentation to establish their dance-able swing. The slower-paced crawl is hauntingly beautiful, a gripping house cut that sinks its claws in with delicate strumming and rhythmic plucks. A sign of great things to come, “Rain Dance” is the second of much more to come from Island Records latest signees.
