Titanics - Low Frames
|Titanics - Low Frames|
New York duo Titanics have sent me a little love letter (alright, email) from across the pond and it made it here without hitting any icebergs (too soon?). The two tracks that make up this single have a sense of romance about them and are full of wistful, summer evenings spent with good friends and no worries. 'Low Frames' has a pulsing bass line and spacious, almost distant vocals the drift on the sea breeze to your friends dad's rowing boat that you probably should be out in but who cares, you're only young once, right? Later that same night, when the candles are lit and the warm blankets are out, 'YOU & ZEAL' comes on to soundtrack that moment when you stare in to the deep, brown eyes of the girl you've known for years as your friend only to realise she's probably the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. Or at least until your midlife crisis. It also has some wicked bird noises and muted female spoken word, a la the Orb's 'Little Fluffy Clouds'. It's dream sequence stuff and it's pretty damn gorgeous. I love you too Titanics.
