14th Tells Some Sweet, Slow Burning Lies

Monday, December 1, 2014

It's just a sheer hunch that the onslaught of boy-girl duos from the UK led as to why London duo, 14th flew under the radar. With their 2011 EP, Hide Yourself, 14th played like AlunaGeorge's more somber, older cousin, bringing a sublime, almost quiet quality to the revival garage R&B mix. After some years on mute, the duo of 14th have recently reemerged, expanded their intimate line-up to a trio, and have now closed the gap between their 2011 debut with a brand new number, "Sweet Lies".

It's a slow burn but "Sweet Lies" is 14th back to seamless fragile confessionals as the track strolls in the same back alleys of twilight ballads of the 1980s, with twinkling lonely synths and an impressive performance from lead vocalist Tracey Duodu, whose voice continues to soulfully crawl all over you. Even better news is that the track is up for free download, so snag it while you can, and wrap yourself into it, especially when the sun begins to slip.
