Ukiyo and FEELDS bring the heart into their new single, Something Like This
RE: When relationships fall into a rut. But with some added groove.
Fremantle’s very own Ukiyo has just dropped Something Like This feat. FEELDS unto the world, and these collaborators might be flaunting 2018’s smoothest and saddest new banger. ONe we think is well worth your ears’ time. The homegrown beat-maker sports his own brand of trip-hop – one splattered with unique and refreshing sounds and techniques that have won him streaming stats into the millions. In Something Like This, those details lay in the wavering, slightly detuned flute solo, and the stuttering percussion, creating a stunning sound that reflects the feelings within the lyrics – confusion, regret, and hesitation. But with a damn good groove. He’s got us confused in a great way, and we think that’s the point.
Slide over to FEELDS on vocal duties. The pair met when their names were thrown together on a Melbourne bill, and collaboration was on the cards from the word go. “Something Like This explores the idea of when it gets too ‘comfortable’ or stale between lovers – where they don’t tell each other what’s really going in their minds, and it comes back to bite them,” says FEELDS.
Try not to move to this. We dare you. And then move to him live when he hits the road for a national tour kicking off this weekend (dates down the bottom).
