The dimly-lit atmospherics touchstones of Beach House are all over this track by London duo Elephant. It can be heard in the dreamy indie sleepy rhythm section and cascading guitar twinkles. But Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck transcend those characteristics through the employment of a faraway choral noise that rises up to greet the track throughout and a more obvious but still gentle funk. The result is still dreamy indie-pop but with extra elements that could turn this track into a psychedelic rap backing track if someone was listening.
