SBTRKT Shares New Tune, Teases Next LP
- Words: Leo Maymind
London heavyhitter SBTRKT has kept a low profile recently, so we were pleasantly surprised to find that he suddenly dropped a brand-new track this weekend. "IMO" is an unpredictable, sparkly take on the producer's trademarked aesthetic of clean arpeggios and intricate production work—just when it seems the song is going to peak or transition to a new section, it cuts off abruptly, leaving a sense of negative space in its wake. SBTRKT's new tune comes paired with a murky, spinning visual courtesy of Lorenzo Durantini and A Hidden Place, and is said to be from a record currently in the works. We have no further details on the release, but "IMO" has certain piqued our interests.
