M.I.A. "Platforms" (demo)

M.I.A. "Platforms" (demo)
Earlier today (May 8), M.I.A. tweeted, "If I find my soundcloud password I'll upload today's demo." Evidently she found it, since she has shared a new track called "Platforms."

This demo is a slightly sleepy take on M.I.A.'s vibrant pop sound, as futuristic synths whirr and twinkle atop of mechanical, rat-a-tatting beats. The vocalist's melodies are sweet and simple, and she sings about diamonds in the rough, "tech-dudes" and emojis. Fans are bound to give this one a smiley face.

Take a listen below.

This isn't the first time in recent months that M.I.A. has shared some new material, although it's not entirely what she has in the works or when it will arrive.
