Pushing themselves and all manner of genre boundaries, seemingly with each and every release, Brighton duo GAPS have shared another new cut from their forthcoming second record in the form of “Lift Me” – a captivating three-minutes that acts as part soundscape, part meditative retreat.
The aforementioned As It Is LP will be released next month, and “Lift Me” acts as a captivating introduction to the record, the band’s always weird and wonderful instrumental backing meeting an intoxicating lead vocal that feels pulled from some other world entirely, wrapping itself in to all manner of shapes as it rolls slowly forward through the somewhat skewed landscape. Expansive and engrossing while feeling brilliantly restrained at the same time, the new track is streaming below right now; the full album gets a release on June 22nd. Check it out:
