Our affinity for New Zealand-based Cross Them Out continues with “Desire,” a free track released to commemorate 1,000 Facebook likes. It begins in recognizable CTO fashion: whispered samples, a gentle boom-bat beat, and soothing piano riffs. But give this joint a minute or so and the piano starts to wander; first up, then down. It escalates and becomes the focus of this soothing track. Check it out for yourself.
And while you’re at it, peep our review of Cross Them Out’s debut EP, Falling Deeper.
