Los Angeles-based electronic outfit Rare Times are readying the second of their three-part EP series. The Mist EP, out August 20 on Feel So Real, promises to further the R&B meets synth-pop upstarts. They’ve held our attention so far, and by the sound of their new single, “Cloudy” (via FADER), they’ll continue to.
“Cloudy” has Rare Times plunging deeper into introspective music for late night walks home. It’s difficult not to think of Cliff Martinez’s score for Drive; the group often reaches for those high resonance bass tones, not to mention some whisper-quiet synths. And Anthony Calonico’s vocals are as silky as ever. Stream “Cloudy,” below.
