Ambient/trip-hop duo Arms and Sleepers have announced their new album titled, Swim Team, set for an October 28th release.
The album’s lead single of the same is an 80′s instrumental, hip-hop, R&B fusion track. Think of it as a cross between Gold Panda and Passion Pit. Yes, it’s that great of a track. There’s no vocals, but that’s a good thing. That would only take away the beauty of the instrumentals.
Inspired by childhood obsessions in the 80s, Swim Team draws from instrumental hip-hop, R&B-influenced instrumentation and a wide range of electronic music to capture nostalgic moments. Despite a relatively short running time of 35 minutes, the album manages to deliver a wide range of intense emotions through its tapestry of intricate melodies and upbeat rhythms.
