There’s a highly intellectual feel to the latest track from up and coming artist She’s Excited. “Drowning” is a single which cleverly utilises spatial effect to pull you under with the currents of the minimalist beats which provide maximum resonance. While it may feel a little slow to start from the prelude, once the bridge hits keeping your head above the catharsis is almost impossible. The moody and atmospheric electronica beat is paired with pensively arrestive lyricism which is offered in sporadic bursts around the unpredictable progressions of the beat which you never know where it will take you next.
There’s no doubt that the Brooklyn-based artist She’s Excited can hold her own in a track, which we have seen with her earlier releases, yet, the decision to bring in Mimiko to add further texture, emotion and expression took Drowning to the next level.
