Discovery: Electric Kif

Dreamlike is the new experimental jazz track from Miami, USA-based Electric Kif, and it somehow manages to be exactly what you expect and completely unexpected at the same time.

By Graeme Smith

What I mean by that is that the track certainly is dreamlike. Yet, there are so many twists, turns and deviations in its melody that you’re never quite sure where the music will go next. Distorted notes give the piece a sense of otherworldliness. Much like a dream it feels real but not quite.

Accompanying the band is renowned pianist Aaron Parks who provides a solo which is the centrepiece of the work.

The third single from their forthcoming LP of the same name, due out in August, you can check out Dreamlike below or via the streaming service of your choice at this link.
