Quadron Quadron
Denmark-based producer Robin Hannibal, the musical mastermind behind the stunning 2006 drop Living With... Owusu & Hannibal, this time teams up with another captivating vocal muse in the delicate Coco to form the duo Quadron. With their eponymous debut set, the two manage an incredibly spacious and soulful downbeat gem brimming with soft emotions and lush, yet impressively reserved, instrumentation that draws strength from the amount of room each evocative element is allowed. The 21-year-old singer plays a commanding lead, whether backed by a soft and comforting wealth of fuzzy flutes and entrancing strings on cuts like "Day" and the comparatively bustling "Average Fruit," or surrounded by the weighty silence felt on "Horse." The far-reaching pair glide sweetly through touches of '60s soul ("Pressure"), get slinky on tunes like "Tone" and "Unpatience," and but for lone, unnecessary miscue "Jeans" (a pointless song about, well, jeans), rarely fail to impress on a disc tailor-made for downtime.
