Australian producer Taka Perry just released “Slow” and it’s a must listen. Featuring the vocals of Jordi Davis, “Slow” contains hauntingly beautiful vocals, a catchy melody, and brilliant synth work – creating something that is a must add to your summer playlists. From the artist himself, “”Slow” is about delusions, fantasies, and figments of imagination. I think of it as a love song with a dark, deranged twist. It’s about not being able to find what you’re looking for, so instead creating a fictional version of it.” Smooth beats, glitchy synths, and those silky-smooth vocals set the scene for Taka Perry’s debut EP, as he builds anticipation for whats coming next. Check out “Slow” now!
