Julian Corrie has been generating a lot of buzz with Miaoux Miaoux, and new single ‘Hey Sound!’ is another reason to keep your eye on this young emerging artist. The single is a step forward in terms of production with a cleaner, more polished sound demonstrating that the young producer is still learning.
The track begins with repetitively hypnotic keys that are joined by tropical-style clicky percussion. This is followed by subtle and tender vocals that have a similar quality to that of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor. The vocals provide the focal part of the song with a distinctly tribal melody especially during the chanting chorus.
As the song continues the spacey keys rise to a crescendo and lead into a brief but tuneful guitar riff complimenting the rest of the tracks floaty sound.
‘Hey Sound!’ is electronic music reaching its best and an exciting taste of things to come from Miaoux Miaoux.
