Thundercat - Heartbreaks + Setbacks

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Flying Lotus and Mono/Poly
Album:
Apocalypse

Previously featured as a guest on J*Davey‘s Queen of Wonderland, buzzmaking singer, songwriter and producer Thundercat steps into the solo Booth spotlight with a freshly-selected single off his next full-length. On Heartbreaks + Setbacks, beatsmiths Flying Lotus and Mono/Poly provide a dense, shapeshifting synth backdrop for the unsigned singer’s reflections on modern romance. Despite being wreathed in reverb and overdubbed harmonies, his vocals possess a soulful immediacy sure to strike a chord with listeners in the DJBooth. Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked for further news and tunes leading up to the artist’s Apocalypse LP, which as yet lacks a solid drop date.
