Enigmatic Melbourne producer Life is Better Blonde has shared the final track Still Life, which is lifted from his new EP ‘LIKE ME’ (out now). Listen to the track via Soundcloud below.
On Still Life, LiBB says: “The song is about feeling like you’ve been abandoned by hope. It could easily be a breakup song as much as it is about depression itself”.
Drawn to down tempo, lumbering kind of grooves, Life is Better Blonde’s music is inspired by sonic accidents, broken sounding things and old voice memos. His recent tracks, Strange Organism and My God is Not Going To Like You is the first encounter between Life is Better Blonde and producer Andrei Eremin, whose previous credits include working with Grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiote and Chet Faker.
Life is Better Blonde is the result of lost and discovered voice memos, late night musings and discarded production scraps. Taking cues from the likes of James Blake, Arthur Russell and Thundercat, the music is both introverted and deeply personal, while displaying a grit common to glitch and electronica.
Releasing his debut EP ‘Space + Tyres’ in 2017 through Majestic Casual, Life is Better Blonde created instant attention with air play on BBC 1 XTRA and Triple J, and online features with Clash Magazine, Indie Shuffle and Huffington Post among others. The 5-track EP also featured Triple J Awarding song, Mine.
