I think I arrived a bit late to the party, although I discovered the works of San Holo after he picked up the guitar. How he incorporates subtle folk and indie elements into his dazzling sound is utterly enchanting, and the new track “black and white” is a marvelous example of that sentiment.
The emotive vocal delivery paired with the comforting songwriting totally compliments the guitar works very well. The track does however take a left turn as we reach the drop. San’s future bass background shines through literally and figuratively considering the glittery lead synth and the massive drop that’s sitting on a beefed up low end. I can’t neglect to mention the soothing harmonies vocals floating in the backdrop as we’re pummeled by this bass – what a beautiful contrast.
