Soft cosmic soul in Latir’s ‘Carousel’ ft. Olivia Nelson & Tokio Myers [out today]
‘Carousel’ is the first self-produced single to be released from Latir’s upcoming Anthems For Lovers EP. His catalogue of romance begins with this nostalgic and ephemeral song, which captures glimpses of a past connection, or as Latir gratifyingly sings “Here’s to holding you, / For a moment, / Here’s to loving you, / For a moment.” That priceless experience of feeling so intimately close to another person might not be infinite, but the memories linger on, elevated by the reverberated piano, sweeping violins, peaceful percussion and Latir’s poetic words.

Symrun shares cosy percussive bop ‘Gucci Emeralds’ + lo-fi football video
“This song was just a nice little flexy sexy thing, there’s somewhat of a football theme throughout the album and I think this is like the song that soundtracks the TikToks to the winners celebrating a cup final in a jacuzzi with the champagne bottles and that. I really like how I used the drill 808s on here, using bass instruments doesn’t come super naturally to me and I think I really worked it well here. The football theme probably mainly came from it being a lockdown activity while there wasn’t anything else to do.”
