bloodkneeves – Bathing
Bloodkneeves are an electronic duo from Newcastle – Australia though, not the UK. Bathing is the track on offer, taken from their Dip EP. It is a fine piece of downtempo. The beats crush past gently, the piano is languid and the effect is rippling water. A head noddingly wasted air to it all. What impact moving to Berlin (which they are about to do) will have on their sound remains to be seen. But for now this pastoral tune is just gorgeous.
Blurb: Newcastle electronic duo, Bloodkneeves, have revealed the first glimpses of their debut EP (out 9 September) with a stream of their psychedelic, introspective and groove driven single Bathing.
Bloodkneeves have maintained a low-key existence on Soundcloud for the past few years, uploading a diverse mix of tracks ranging from down-tempo ambient electronica to upbeat dance tunes. However, Bathing hints to a more focused and mature sound, with lush psychedelic textures stretching across thick infectious hip hop grooves.
While Newcastle is known for producing a myriad of great rock based bands, Bloodkneeves are helping to fill the somewhat neglected niche of electronic producers in the town.
