Detroit based duo Gifted Balance have released ‘Middle of the Night’ – a late-night neo-R&B track.
Eerie but melodically lush, ‘Middle of the Night’ diverges from an initially glitched out introduction to carving right into a ping-ponging vocal line. It’s a polished track, and it glides pretty organically from sombre, lo-fi tones to triumphantly pleasant twinkles and starlit pads – all in a sort of luxury car suspension thanks to the soft texturing and engineering throughout.
‘Middle of the Night’ feels right for the kind of late night asphalt you want to be spinning this track to and there’s some real weight to be had behind this listen. Definitely recommended for any hazy playlists that could do with a bit more ambience and soul behind the curtain.
