Friend Within "The Cause"
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
Friend Within is the new alias of a London artist who we've been told that we already know, even though he's not willing to reveal his exact identity just yet. Originally credited to "Unknown," the song "#52"—which was featured in Disclosure's recent XLR8R podcast—was in fact a production from the elusive Friend Within. Now, we have "The Cause," a track that sees the producer melding together soulful vocals, a bouncy, synth-driven melody, and both live-sounding snares and programmed drums. Furthermore, a set of jazzy keyboard riffs makes the production seem especially lavish. The—for now—anonymous Friend Within project will release its forthcoming The Underground EP through Hypercolour on April 1.
