Australian duo Bag Raiders are amongst our favourite acts of the past decade. Easily. We’re never quite sure if they are ever going to release anything else or if they have packed it in; so whenever a new tune, or a nugget of news slips out we’re always a) relieved they are still going and b) excited to hear their new material. We’ve got both right here (new tune and nugget of news that is). The guys have announced a brand new EP due at the end of this summer. Titled Waterfalls, it’ll be the now-L.A. based pair’s first new music since last years Nairobi/Savannah double A-side. Check out the first track from the EP, Vapour Trails below, it’s a free download from Bag Raiders website.
Vapour Trails is a dream six minutes of laid back vocal House. It’s decidedly Bag Raiders (more reminiscent of first-album era Bag Raiders than their more recent, tougher, output) but also reminds us a little of Dirty Vegas. A warm and enticing tune that pairs comfortable vocals with a smooth, laid back, Electronica groove and rising strings in a track that has us eager to hear more. DancePop at it’s hazy finest; it’s so good to have Bag Raiders back.
Bag Raider’s Waterfalls EP is due out later this year.
