Young Athletes League "Glossed Over"
At the end of the month, new Brooklyn-based imprint Ceremony will celebrate its first release with an EP from UK production duo Young Athletes League. Scheduled to drop on March 29, We Only Feed Ourselves will feature the below track, in addition to the record's title track and "Monaco Sunglasses." "Glossed Over" is a lesson in processing and layering, as the singer's voice is pulled and bent into something resembling a soft accordion, nearly making his vocals indistinguishable from the slight backdrop of synthesizers. Another element that seems to melt over the course of the song is a noticeable guitar riff at the beginning that quickly becomes cushioned by bass and snare, leaving a straight-ahead house rhythm as the only predictable thing going on here.
