There’s nothing in the world like waking up on a gloomy weekend morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, and diving headfirst into my SoundCloud stream to look for new music. This morning’s SoundCloud exploration led me to discover the two-piece duo, Folded Like Fabric, who recently put out their debut I Tried EP that pushes the creative boundaries with tracks that feature a pop backbone and infused with jazzy undertones and somber toplines.
All four tracks on the EP are worth checking out, and each of them showcases a different aspect of the duo’s talented production. They put out the title track of the EP, “You Said,” a few weeks ago and it’s a mesmerizing blend of smooth production underneath a slick, catchy topline that instantly hooks you in. Shimmering string arrangements create an atmospheric, airy vibe that serves as the perfect counterbalance for the emotive croons of Connor Sims. Check it out below.
