Premiere: Frameworks – Kings (Original Mix)
Manchester-based performer and producer Frameworks is has shared the second piece from his forthcoming album. “Kings” is the titular single from the instrumental artist’s atmospheric downtempo LP, which is set for release later this summer via Emancipator‘s imprint Loci Records.
Signaling itself an ambient labor of love, “Kings” harpoons back to the lush, symphonic compositions that make up Matthew James Brewer’s sonic catalog. The entire track is littered with subtle complexities — delicate strings, pulsating bass lines, and thrilling vocals — which showcase Frameworks’ adeptness for pulling together indie electronica and jazzy hip-hop into one stunning dialogue that is simultaneously sorrowful and hopeful.
“Kings” follows Frameworks’ remix of Tor’s “Vaults,” a fellow Loci label mate who will be touring together this summer along with other Loci artists. Alongside this tour, Frameworks is also slated to hit two large International festivals this August, Shambhala and Oregon Eclipse.
