Uhh, how to put ALTA's "Plans" in words. That tune was a tricky one. Tricky in a sense that I felt I've been sent a few different tracks somehow perfectly blended together. And yes - those guys became my weakness after just a few listens of that one song.
ALTA, who were Brent's discovery a while back, are an Australian electronic duo consisting of Hannah Lesser (those beautiful vocals) and Julius Dowson (production). The track starts in a very subtle / smooth way revolving heavily around Hannah's vocal work, but then things quickly turn around. A few words from the guys about the song writing process:
We focus heavily on rhythms and use a range of different percussive sounds to build up tracks… For this track we tried to have distinctive differences between song sections to coincide with the lyrics which had sections broken into different themes (we try to do this a lot in songs).
The track is included in duo's Sincere EP - definitely check it out.
