Hermitude – Dark Night Sweet Light

Precise yet unrestrained is the biggest compliment I can give the Sydney duo’s fifth studio album. With this release the pair have created a unique concoction of hip-hop, electronic soul and big bass heavy tunes that will be a beacon for the emerging Australian future beats sound to follow.

The album has a roundedness to it thanks to the bigger, energetic opening tracks Hijinx and Through The Roof before becoming more calm and melodic on Bermuda Bay and Hazy Love. 

Each progressive listen also reveals more complexities, each track has been inspected meticulously rather than shoe horning in yet another catchy hook or melody.

Star rating: ****1/2
