Netherlands/New Zealand producer Malvae brings forth visual imagery and inspiration of the rainforests and wetlands across the globe through his gritty and glitchy new single ‘Slash & Burn’, which also features MAY BBY on the vocal front.
Through the heavy reliance on distorted synths and thumping drums that collectively rip through the soundscape with emphatic force, ‘Slash & Burn’ creates a tumultuous sensation across the piece of which MAY BBY‘s angelic melodies further heighten the intensity of the track with their haunting approach.
Malvae further outlines the message behind ‘Slash & Burn’: “implements the feelings of fires burning, beauty meeting chaos, making sense of the destruction. The realisation that anything can disappear or appear in a second. When MAY BBY and I met for our session we still had 10 mins left after recording another song. I showed her this idea, and this became the track instead of the one we intended. Building further on that idea of how things can appear and disappear just like that.”
