, SBTRKT feat. Raury – ‘Higher’

The young Atlanta singer Raury who is just shy of 18 gets a bigger platform on a new song from SBTRKT’s forthcoming album Wonder Where We Land (out in the first week of October on Young Turks).

On ‘Higher’, Raury moves between rapid-fire rapping and hook singing on the chorus, as SBTRKT keeps the instrumentation subservient with head-nodding inducing synths and beats serving his rasp well.

Previous new album tracks: ‘New Dorp New York’ feat. Ezra Koening / ‘Temporary View’ feat. Sampha.
