Mellow little number here from Chicago duo THE-DRUM, entitled 'Omar'. Dreamy, surreal vocals bob up and down on waves of synth and echo before a lush beat surrounds them. The samples are mixed and layered with notable skill, swelling with the sound in a manner quite mesmerising. Like the picture above, we're given a small window to look through, into a vibrant and inviting new world, all the while rooted by reality. 'Omar' is a tantalising glimpse into somewhere better than here, and I love that. Stream above or hear more.
