There are some acts that play well with others so much, that when they go solo they seem like seasoned artists. Naeem is one of those acts. After years of performing with Bon Iver and Mouse On Mars to name a few, he’s ready to release his own music. With a signing to new imprint 37d03d, his new single “You and I” may be a Silver Apples cover but he quickly makes it his own.
The song is layered and textured in a way that immediately distances itself from the original. The mix of beats and synths that create a cluster of tones pair perfectly with the stark and emotionally charged vocals. There’s hints of soul and dark electronica here that intermingle in a way that sets the track apart from the norm without seeming alien.
The single is ready to stream on all streaming site or it can be purchased in all digital outlets via 37d03d.
