Today we are pleased to team up with the great guys of MAIO for the release of their new single “Root Eye,” the perfect soundtrack as many like in the states relax for the holidays. The nice blend of trip hop a la Portishead with the loungy melodies comes together in perfect harmony to create a beautiful piece of distorting proportions.
About the song, the band comments “After recording the music I had a visit from my friend Zoe, who happens to be an amazing singer and songwriter. After playing the tracks for her she expressed interest in singing on the tracks. During a rehearsal she began whistling over one of the tracks and I decided in that moment to record without her knowledge, and it ended up sounding amazing. This led to her blowing my mind with improvisations. Months later when we decided to record the song in its finality, she explained that the lyrics were about “the root eye” and her experience of a recent trip. Although I pushed for the lyrics to be in Spanish, she decided to sing it in English and for some reason, from the beginning, that worked for me.”
