Listen: Charles Murdoch - Privacy feat. Oscar Key Sung

Charles and Oscar combine on a super airy composition.

For the past few months, a young man out of Brisbane by the name of Charles Murdoch has been drip-feeding the Internet tracks off his long-awaited debut LP, Point. Keeping things consistent, we've now been gifted the third installment, Privacy. This one features assistance from one of Australia’s better-known crooning vocalists in Oscar Key Sung.

The music bed is dominated by scattered high-hats and ethereal wailing synth chords. Like most of Charles' tracks, Privacy makes you feel as though the earth is temporarily devoid of gravity and you're just calmly floating about the joint. As Oscar does best, his whispering vocals ride deftly alongside Murdoch's signature sounds. For me, this release highlights more than ever, Murdoch's ability to write music that can be enjoyed equally across disparate environments – be it dancefloors or living rooms. Although this release isn't as punchy or memorable as Frogs or Straws, it yet again feels authentically delicate. You can almost physically hear the labour and decision-making that's gone into making the song sound the way it does. A fascination I've had with Murdoch's music for quite some time.

Cop Privacy below via SoundCloud as we await Point with bated breath.
