Cubicolor return to Anjunadeep with ethereal electronica
Anjunadeep alumni Cubicolor have returned to the label with a brand new, left-field single that they’ve dubbed “Counterpart.” The past year has been a pretty quiet for the duo, now trio with the offocial addition of vocalist Tim Digby-Bell — as they’ve been spending copious amounts of time on the road, and more so in the studio crafting new music. Now, they’re ready to share their freshened sound to the world.
“Counterpart” comes as an ethereal electronica cut, centering on Digby-Bell’s poignant vocals and dissonant piano chords. Its drawn out notes and minimal instrumentation, which is completed by glittering guitar riffs, paint a cloudy landscape in the mind, reminiscent of foggy drive or a tense trek into the deep forest. Of the new single, the band had this to say on their SoundCloud:
“With ‘Counterpart’ we wanted to write a song that worked on a dance floor but that could equally be played as a band. Finding legendary drummer Rich Spaven (Cinematic Orchestra, Flying Lotus) was the final missing piece where we found what we were looking for – a dance record that had a combination of the organic and the electronic.”
