Bayou – Airlock

There’s a shimmering, shuddering delight in this new cut from London’s Bayou. ‘Airlock”s got me on a kind of metaphysical Gravity-hype, floating and falling like an oxygen-deprived Sandra Bullock as the soloist delivers his ominous falsetto, “It’s always too far away”. It contrasts perfectly with a vocoded, near-rap that sounds as if it was recorded by Max, the alien spaceship from Flight of the Navigator, which is in no way a bad thing. It’s off of ‘Loopback’, due for release May 12th on Double Denim.
