Superb production elevates this rhythmically hypnotic and seductive new single from Yann Sella and singer Jenny.
Featuring an immediately dreamlike arrangement, with tribal layers of distant voice and movement alike, slowly washing through – Fire & Gold brings in a regimental style vocal for a marching feel that grows stronger with every few bars of music.
Creative as ever, Yann Sella weaves in multiple layers of detail and nods to various genres throughout this mix. The pulse or heart of the track stops and starts, allowing the various outer elements to take their moment in the spotlight, and all of this permits Jenny’s breathy, expressive vocal to feel both instrumental and emotive in its relaying of these intimate, poetic lyrics.
Dramatic and powerful but with a mellow, exotic overall groove, Fire & Gold has the makings of a trip hop alternative, subtly infectious in its level of presence and that euphoric, dreamy atmosphere.
