2016 Adult Swim Singles Program, Week 7: Ryan Hemsworth feat. Keaton Henson & Mitski – “Wait”

<—- Week 6: Thelonious Martin feat. Joey Purp – “Bomaye”

Week 8: Elysia Crampton – “Flora’s Theme” —->

Hey everyone. RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the 2016 Adult Swim Singles Program.

This week, Canadian record producer Ryan Hemsworth brings us a new single in collaboration with English folk singer Keaton Henson (whose newest album is due out in September) and indie rock musician Mitski, whose newest release came out last month. Together, the three join forces for a melancholic tune titled “Wait”. The production is relatively subdued, with some light keyboards and low-key clattering percussion as a musical base that accentuates the haunting vocals of Keaton and Mitski: their voices enveloping the listener in the somberness at play. While the musical component is a far cry from what both singers normally put out, the tone is a perfect fit for the tortured emotions that the two often seek to portray in their music. You can stream “Wait” below, and you can download it for free right here.
