One of the online underground’s best-kept secrets, 18+ have garnered acclaim with a trilogy of mixtapes, leading to commissions by Prada and the Venice Biennale. Blending lyrical themes of sexual ambiguity, anonymity, voyeurism and fantasy in the digital era with a minimal, yet catchy electronic hip-hop-meets-R&B aesthetic, their intrigue is deepened by how little is known about this US boy-girl duo. As 18+ prepare to emerge from the recesses of the internet, their first commercial release drops on Houndstooth.The two tracks seem to collide perfectly; seamlessly moving from chapter to chapter – it’s quite beautiful.
The two-track single is available digitally from iTunes, but it has also been pressed to white, dinked 7″ vinyl (the first 7″ on Houndstooth – cut & mastered by Matt Colton, naturally) in a strictly limited run of 300 copies worldwide. Order from the Houndstooth store to receive free WAVs.
Listen to “Crow” and “Horn” above and be sure to check out their YouTube channel for some unique audio-visual treats.
We’re truly wild about this duo…
