Listen: Winston Surfshirt - Maybe I'm In Love feat. Talib Kweli

Aussie indie-pop faves team up with legendary New York MC on addictive new single

After teaming up with Genesis Owusu earlier in the year on There’s Only One, Winston Surfshirt are back with another heavy weight collaboration, this time teaming up with none other than hip hop royalty himself, Talib Kweli, for the addictively breezy new joint, Maybe I’m In Love. 

A mellow, laidback horn section and understated keys underpin the indie-boom-bap beat, with Winston’s husky, melodic vocals providing the perfect counterpoint to Talib Kweli’s rapid-fire rhymes in this dope cross-genre, cross-generational musical meeting of minds. 

Of working with Kweli, Winston says "Maybe I'm In Love With You' was a song we wrote in London a few years ago. Me, Bustlip & Bone came up with the beat on our first day there and when the rest of the band arrived we put down words instantly. I remember waking Bustlip up while recording vocals in the lounge room. 

There's a sense of nostalgia with this track, it takes me straight back to walking around sunny London, listening to the demo on repeat. Then Talib took the whole record to another level entirely! He was at the top of our list for a feature thinking there was no way he would say yes but we got onto him a couple months later and he agreed to jump on. Bit of a career defining moment for sure."
