New Track: Brolin – ‘Portland’

From collaborations with equally prodigal talents (FTSE, Luke Abbott) to flair-filled remixes of some of our favourite on-the-up popstars (Chlöe Howl, Lulu James), fast-rising British producer Brolin seems to be able to do little wrong in 2013. With ‘Portland‘ – the first fruit revealed from a recent session produced by Peaking Lights‘ Aaron Coyes – the mysterious young beat-maker continues to cement his place as one of the year’s brightest new hopes.

Built around swathes of air-lite guitars, off-beat chords and Brolin’s fragile cries of “sunshine, you should waste your time better,” ‘Portland’ is as elegant as they come: spacious, delicate and truly heart-stopping.
