RELATIIV are absolutely one of the most underrated acts out there.
I fell in love with the Berlin duo through Mike's feature of "Times of Uncertainty" and I can't get enough of them ever since. And today I'm stoked to premiere their new single "The Same", out via our friends at Conjunct Recordings.
You'll embark on a lush r&b experience with a pinch of nostalgia - an amazing combination of slow beatwork, smooth synths, and immersive sound design. They share:
The inspiration behind "The Same" comes from the stillness and uncertainty that flooded the air in the first few days of quarantine, back in early March of 2020.
It's a conversation with oneself from the future - a future that knows how things will have unfolded, how things and people will have changed. But also flirts with the idea of an encounter between these two people - occupying the same body but living two completely different realities, and standing on different edges of the spectrum of time.
The song is out on all platforms tomorrow here.
