(Vested In Culture/Epic)
It's impossible not to relish Coco O's sultry vocals on "Avalanche," the sophomore effort from Danish electro-soul duo Quadron. Her sweet voice tangles with a mix of indie pop, electronica, soul and jazz here, and it's all tightly spun together by producer Robin Hannibal.
Anyone with an ear to recent imports like Jessie Ware and James Blake has likely heard the mysterious, quiet storm minimalism of Hannibal's other project, Rhye. But where his work with Rhye delves into woozy, candle-lit soul, he dials up lighter grooves with Quadron.
