What's This?

We’ve been eagerly awaiting the return of Basenji for almost a year now, but that probably says more about our impatience than it does about the Australian producer’s inactivity. No matter, we finally got what we were looking for, and it couldn’t have come at a better time! With summer upon us, Basenji and fellow Aussie’s Scenic has supplied us with our annual dose of #summervibes.

The song is a much moodier offering than any of Basenji’s earlier work, but retains a number of the producer’s trademark qualities. Over angelic harps and twinkling keys, Scenic insert their childlike vocals, as if rocking the listener to sleep. While the song closely resembles a lullaby, it seems to better replicate the feeling of being squished by a thousand tiny rose petals. If you aren’t sure what that feels like, I’d suggest find out below.
