[Audio] Lemonade’s ‘Come Down Softly’

 

Lemonade

Brooklyn based Dreampop trio Lemonade are following on from their comeback single Stepping, released in June, with another new track in advance of their forthcoming new album. Come Down Softly is taken from their third album, titled Minus Tide which is due for release next month via Cascine, and sees them coming back even more, by the time the album is released they will have come back so much that they’ll pretty much be standing right in your face. Have a listen before things get awkward.

Contrasting smooth a R&B flavour with pounding, abrasive drums, Come Down Softly switches between the gentle and the slightly less gentle. A luscious slice of chill out electronica with a New Jack Swing. With a booming bass and a selection of synths that transcended the word ‘shimmering’ the soundtrack provides a hazy backing for a impassioned, but slightly swaggering, vocal performance. It’s the kind of song you instinctually want to relax too, but irritatingly it keeps making you want to get up and dance too. Inconsiderate, but funky as hell. We’re looking forward to the album.

[Audio] Lemonade’s ‘Stepping’

 

Lemonade

The latest addition to the ecclectic Cascine stable comes in the form of Brooklyn based trio Lemonade. Two years on from the release of their last record, Diver, these guys are set to release their third album; to be titled Minus Tide, in September. Before then you can have a taste of what to expect from Lemonade in the form of Stepping. A quick search on Discogs.com revels that there is indeed an artist called ‘Vodka’, we smell a collaboration coming on, we’d like a taste of that too!

The track combines the rugged and the sweet, with cascading rhythms that hit almost a tribal point with their undulating kicks, contrasting with airy pads and distant, gentle, vocals. Taking reference points of everything from 90s House to 80s soundtrack material, Stepping feels like a chaotic affair, but it’s really not. There’s order to the madness and some incredibly catchy hooks set adrift on a sea of nostalgic keys and Acidic burbling. It should be a vey interesting album.
