Although it pains me to do so, let's disregard this guy's hipster X beard cliché combo for now and talk music.
I usually turn my nose up at James Blake like imitations (because I'm a pretentious c*nt), but this is a whole other breed of excellence.
The falsetto sample loop is just mesmorizing, turning this instrumental into something straight out of a Drake mixtape. That, the swing on the drums, and choice of snare is filling me with producer envy.
On top of this intrumental treat, Garratt drops the hookiest R&B chorus I've heard in a long time (and all in his falsetto), comfortably cementing him as a badass producer/writer and one to watch in 2015.
With the abundance of indie, london grammar'esque sultry tracks circulating right now, it's difficult to find electronic-acoustic ballads that actually stand out. This brit duo however, are the exception. This track is a vocal engineering masterclass, with the male-female vocals effortlessly wrapping around one another for the entirety of the song. The production is also perfectly cooked - raw enough to let the vocals resonate, and refined enough to hold the pace.
They have also committed to dropping a new track on the 1st of every month this year, which I can say as a producer, is no easy feat.
