LISTEN: Conner Youngblood - Aqua Regia/Amelia

*Originally published for The Line of Best Fit (27/11/13)

Conner Youngblood returns with his most immersive and beat-heavy music yet in 'Aqua Regia/Amelia'.

The Texan’s latest work is testament to his multi-instrumentalist talent. On 'Amelia', we are thrown into a world full of spooled guitars, marching drums, jewelled keys and faraway falsettos.

Second track, 'Aqua Regia', hears lethargic hip-hop rhythms and demonised vocals float about with what sounds like Appalachian zither instruments. Mr Youngblood certainly isn’t one to restrict himself.

It’s stirring, original stuff that’ll to get you tangled in unbounded layers. We’re excited to see what’s next.
