Brighton-based producer Ambassadeurs had a big 2015 thanks to a series of EPs and a highly regarded debut album, Patterns, which saw him declared “the new Jamie xx.” Now he’s back in the studio recording his sophomore album, but in the mean-time, he’s set to release the four-track Halos EP via his own Lost Tribe Records imprint, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere of one of the tracks, Kava.
The Halos EP sees Ambassadeurs step away from the sounds of the city and towards the countryside and wilderness, and this is evident with the stripped-down, organic feel of the tracks. As well, the EP explores a more definitive four-to-the-floor sound without losing Ambassadeurs’ signature style. Kava is a light, bouncy, and breezy trek through the autumn wilderness, replete with airy vocal chops, effervescent twinkles, and simple-yet-touching chimes. Simple isn’t always better, but in this case it is.
Pick up Kava and the rest of the EP Jan. 15.
