It’s always a good day when Toronto quartet BADBADNOTGOOD share new music. The Canadian group is gearing up for the release of their fourth studio album IV on July 8th and this new track with Kaytranada called “Lavender” gets us further excited for the release.
‘Speaking to the Fader BBNG explained “We made ‘Lavender’ amongst many other songs and samples with Kaytranada in our home studio, Studio 69. Kay started the idea as a beat with our drum breaks and some synth melodies. Then we recut the drums and synth to formulate a song with more sections. Kay came back to Toronto and gave us that hot lead melody as well as percussion and we all finalized the arrangement. It’s an incredible honour to call Kay a close friend of ours; he is a talent like no other.”
With its ambient production, off-kilter sax line and jazzy groove it’s hard to pigeonhole but it sure is damn good.
