Blood Orange: “Sutphin Boulevard”
This is so cool that it might make you feel more cool just by association. As you’re rocking Blood Orange in your headphones, you’ll find a smile playing on your lips as if you’ve got a good secret cause no one knows how effing cool the track that is playing in your ears right now but you know it…yeah you know it. That’s kind of how I felt this morning on the tube with this track and that’s the best way I can describe this chilled slice of japanese influenced chillwave Sutphin Boulevard, that guitar riff intro for starters will keep you hooked, and then those vocals…(seriously he sounds like Prince on this one)
Blood Orange is Devonte Hynes (Lightspeed Champion) who has worked with Florence & The Machine, The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Solange, Emmy The Great, Tilly And The Wall, The Horrors, Marina & The Diamonds and so many more.
