While Sampha may have gained notoriety by playing a mainstay position beside SBTRKT, Koreless and himself recently ventured into new territory together by forming the spastic electronic project, Short Stories. Having signed onto Young Turks, the same record label behind SBTRKT and The xx, the pairing have put out two new singles, “On The Way” and “Let It Go.”
“On The Way,” which is an open 2-step sounding landscape, features production work from both sides of the project including Koreless‘ poignant space-saving beats and Sampha‘s distil “ohhhs.” Much the same, “Let It Go” is a glaring beat-ridden single with erratic loops and soaring synths.
While this duo may not be far along, expectations for the pairing are already quite high, and judging by what I’ve heard today, I confidently agree that these two are ones to lookout for in 2013.
