Amsterdam-based duo Feng Suave send us back to the 70s with their latest single and video “Tomb For Rockets.” Toying with the vintage elements of soul, Feng Suave craft a pop soundscape smeared with gauzy dreamy hues that keeps you swinging between the past and present. The single comes with a video directed by Bob Sizoo that brings back VHS aesthetics – hazy, grainy, simple, and purely beautiful:

On the new song, they said: “For this release, we decided to record analogue to tape. This was a first for us and provided a nice change from our previous recording experiences which often involved overdubbing every instrument onto a digital grid, and this provided us an opportunity to capture a raw and dense sound. By avoiding the usual computerised workstation and focussing in and around analogue instruments, it changed a lot for us creatively and allowed us to focus more on capturing a genuine moment rather than recording a flawless take.”

The pair went on to say: “We spent a long time looking for the right structure in this tune and had a hard time coming up with something that felt laid back and breezy without sounding uninspired or too easy. The lyrics however came very naturally and when combined with the music they make something that feels quite close to a love song.” 

Watch out for more drops from the duo this year.
