If you’ve heard either of the Australian duo’s previous EPs, what awaits you on their full-length debut should come as no surprise. The pair have made a name for themselves in the last couple of years with their captivating blend of 2-step rhythms and tender R&B vocals, and this is on offer in abundance on ‘Backwater’.
Tracks like ‘Last Yearn’ and ‘Too Fast’ see them reach new levels of delicacy, with club influences more prominent elsewhere, but the pervasive dreaminess and charm ultimately results in an absorbing debut album.
