Beau Diako took smoothness on another level.
"Cute", featuring Totu (from Tora), marks the release of Beau's debut EP Flutter. Totu shares about the song:
When Beau sent me this instrumental I got really excited and started recording vocals at home straight away. The melodies came quickly, but the lyrics arrived much much later. I sent Beau my idea for the chorus before it actually had any lyrics, which was a really bad idea because he ended up getting quite attached to my mumble singing, and even when I finally sent him the complete vocals with lyrics, he preferred the mumble! In the end we came to a compromise, keeping some of the mumble vocals in there with the real ones. It kinda sounds nice like that so everyone wins.
The track evolves in such a nice way - it's so gentle in the beginning, featuring soft keys, chimes and beatwork, and gets super fresh and groovy in the chorus, all blended together with silky vocals and amazing guitar work.
