London duo Whilk and Misky (aka Charlie and Nima) were constant plays last year with addictive rhythms like “Burn With Me” and “Babe I’m Yours” off their The First Sip EP. W&M manage to balance a concoction of folk, electronic and tribal influences that is more than appetizing.
After a short, self-described “winter” coming to an end, W&M have dropped two new tracks that fit perfectly into their growing catalog. Recent release “Rain Dance” hums and builds with a haunting sample, light percussion and subtle guitar work before erupting with engaging vocals. First single “I Want Your Lovin'” heads for sexier territory with Pharrell-esque melodies amid a piano soundscape. Expect the momentum to keep building for Whilk and Misky in 2016 with a host of North American tour dates.
