Toronto’s BADBADNOTGOOD have shared a delightful new track called “Lavender” that they made with their dear friendKaytranada. The track evolves as it goes — there are three or four acts — but it is held together by boingy synths, an off-kilter sax line, and an easy-going groove. It’s a little bit psychedelic and kind of jazzy, too.
“We made ‘Lavender’ amongst many other songs and samples with Kaytranada in our home studio, Studio 69,” BBNG told The FADER in an email. “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.”
Listen to “Lavender” below. IV, BBNG’s fourth collection, is out July 8 via Innovative Leisure.
