Flying Lotus has released two new singles, the Little Dragon collab “Spontaneous” and dirty synth swirler “Takashi.”
“Spontaneous” whirs to life with a vivid assortment of bright synths, creating a sensual, lush soundscape. Little Dragon singer Yukimi Nagano manages to cut through the thick sonic haze with her silky vocals. “Sippin’ on midnight / It tastes like nostalgia / It tastes like a full-set gaze / Or Purple Haze with you,” she sings.
On the other hand, “Takashi” is a percussive track that layers an array of instruments around a dirty synth bassline. The eclectic tune recalls ’90s video game soundtracks with a touch of Daft Punk.
The double-release comes just days after FlyLo dropped the MV for “Fire is Coming,” featuring filmmaker and Twin Peaks creator David Lynch. All three songs will be included on the musician’s upcoming 27-track album, Flamagra, due out May 24.
