Electronica duo +2db have released their hauntingly alluring debut, ‘+’.
Although ‘+’ is a relatively modest debut for Kuala Lumpur’s celebrated electronica duo, +2db succeed in crafting a homogeneous sound whilst exploring and blending different textures in their music.
The album’s strength lies in its simplicity – think concrete hooks with deliciously uncomplicated arrangements. While +2db’s atmospheric backdrop seems to be a product of a feverish dream, the emotive themes addressed in the lyrics keep things sombre and intriguing.
Have a listen to ‘Totem’, +2db’s collaboration with flame-haired producer Darren Ashley below.
