New: FAE - Ruok

image

Copenhagen boy/girl duo FAE isn’t new to Denmark’s underground music scene. Since Battlekat broke up, Ruok is the first song that surfaces from Battlekat's members and God we're talking about a tune that could bring down walls! Nine and a half minutes of Knife's otherworldly yet sensual pop mixed up with some dance frenzy, ’90s rave drilled vibes to keep you up 'till the sun comes up! But it's this constant evolution that's stuck in your mind, going from synth pop to techno plus the aforementioned sounds that feels so natural. A gigantic effort that's close to perfection. Ten minutes and not a second lost…. Respect!
