Here's a nice modern setup that proves distance is no barrier to the successful realisation of an idea: in this case, an EP of ethereal "soul" – a term used advisedly because there are no bellowing displays of passion here. Alina Baraz is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio, now living in LA, and Matias Saabye Køedt is a Danish electronicist of similar vintage who operates as Galimatias. She has the voice of an angel who communicates via the medium of the exquisite, etiolated sigh; he ensures the crisp, clipped sonics are sufficiently textured and rich in snagging detail that they achieve a sort of slow-motion devastation. Pay cursory attention to the music on their Urban Flora EP and you will assume it is some languid easy-listening R&B soundtrack for carefree summer loving. Move closer and you will hear songs about possession/obsession and the demerits of infatuation, set to a uniformly, dreamily dragging downtempo avant-muzak designed to give you daymares about the creeping, insinuating nature of desire.
