Elevate / 30/70 Collective

30/70 Collective - Elevate

Rhythm Section International

Clearly there's something in the water down in Melbourne. With the success of Hiatus Kaiyote we now have 30/70 Collective to emerge from their vibrant music scene. "Elevate" is the superb follow up to their impressive debut "Cold Radish Coma". This sublime release resonates with warm soulful harmonies and strong instrumentation. The opener "Slangin" is laid back, warm and melodic. The tune is built around rhythmic synths, moogs and a cavalcade of vocals, most notably lead vocalist Allysha Joy. "Misrepresented" follows the same formula with the addition of funky guitar rhythms and horns. Each track here flows together thematically and filled with rich textures and catchy hooks. The only negative is there's only 9 tracks to savor. That being said, "Elevate" is deeply satisfying record that warrants repeated listens. This is a group to keep an eye on
