Made In Heights, the duo who slipped quietly into our world with their mysterious melodies, just released a new piece, Panther, and it’s as hauntingly beautiful as ever. If this is your first time hearing about Made In Heights, listen up. Their first self-titled album was released in late 2010, quickly became a classic, and one of my favorite albums of all time. Take a peek at some of the tracks, and I dare you not to fall in love. Kelsey Bulkin and producer Sabzi start with short, tickling toplines, then layer in deep and resonant bass lines with angelic vocals that spark anxiety and nearness, both provocative and comforting, melancholy and happy, real and surreal.
Made In Heights’ mystical, minor approach has been mirrored and adapted by artists who have grown significantly in the past few years — think Chet Faker and Odesza. We’ve been craving new and classic sounds from these two for a while, so let’s hope this is a hint of more to come soon. Either we’ll make fans out of you all, or Made In Heights will hypnotize you in.
