New Cor!s Featuring Akio: “Hero”

Busy week ahead for Cor!s. Constituting one half of KiWi, who drop a new album on the 25th, she’s also made time to share “Hero,” a dramatic bit of EDM-pop featuring singer Akio (Sugar’s Campaign, among others). She creates a slowly building number, full of electronic wisps (that, in a nice detail, bend a bit) that eventually get joined by beats that just pummel away. It’s conventional in formula — it rises up, only to drop — but Cor!s does the blueprint well, and even the big, buzzy plunge works wonders (imagine what it could do in an actual live setting). Listen below.
