New Half Mile Beach Group: “Baobab”

One of the characteristics that has made Zushi project Half Mile Beach Group stand out in 2015 has been their approach to singing. On windswept numbers “Yankee” and “Twilight,” the voices at the center of the songs have been glazed with electronics, giving them an unearthly edge. New number “Baobab” takes it even further — the singing doesn’t even result in any (clear) words, but rather a buzzing that functions more as a layer. It works, though the guitar playing and tropical touches lurking in the background ultimately carry the song furthest, even when they get unsettling. Listen above.
