Brand New High Rise Finale
High Rise Finale first came to my attention because it’s a new project from Matt Bailey of The Salient Braves, who I adore. Of course, this project has some similarities, especially in the lyrical styling, but it’s a much more electronic adventure. He’s collaborating with Neil Ritchie, who helped produce some of his other work, and together they’ve just released this rad new tune. I dig how the synth work seems to elaborate or emphasize the syllables delivered by Bailey. Plus, the middle section of instrumentals shows just how carefully the group have crafted their electronic sounds. It’s pop music from the future, brought back to warm you up today.
