LOW FEM I WILL BE THERE.
Introducing low fem, the Brooklyn pop-curious, econo-disco duo simply known as Max and Lucas who materialised just two days ago with their debut EP, S/ZEMYA TYPE I. From this three-track release, we’re picking out ‘I Will Be There.’, an Adult Jazz-esque slow burner that opens with a barefaced vocal addressing a nameless other - “you’ll fuck up too much love, and I’ll be there, you know I’ll be there.” A hopeless romantic or a hopeful one-night stand; however you wish to interpret this song’s backstory, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself wrapped in admiration for the lead vocalist’s quirky baritone (anyone else hearing a little Samuel T. Herring?) and experimental ebb and flow arrangement. Building from a sweet sample pad melody, ‘I Will Be There.’ is enriched with a groovy bassline, spiky dance synths, woody percussion, triumphant horns, and bright piano melodies, all of which rise and regres to translate the emotional turmoil of a confusing romantic encounter into chaotic order. - HTListen
