New Gorgeous Children – “Sour”

gorgeous children sour

Most Vangelis/Blade Runner-sampling hip hop songs don’t work. Neither do most hip hop releases on Canadian boutique electronic music labels. But then there’s Gorgeous Children’s upcoming mixtape/EP on Jacque Greene’s ever-picky Vase imprint. With Gorgeous Children’s resident producer Gila Monster taking a good helping of synth whirls from Vangelis’ soundtrack and adding a solid amount of hi hat/snare-based percussion, Face Vega takes us home with a few sharply executed, fuck the-world verses and a surprisingly chant-able chorus. The tape is called ICE and will be upon us soon. If you forgot, the group is Gila Monster and Face Vega. Expect big things.
