James Blake + Rosalia – Barefoot in the Park

It’s still the dead of winter where I am but as the daylight hours increase, the sun starts to actually feel warm again, visually it is starting to resemble better days ahead. It’s funny that the shape of shadows and the tones of daylight alone can conjure up memories on what it’s like to be outside in the grass, cycling through a crisp breeze, or when that cold drink just hits the spot perfectly.

Everyone knows James Blake’s abilities (esp after seeing him live – wow). Enter Rosalia. She’s massive in Spain and US Latin charts, but not for the standard infectious pop reasons. She’s got this incredible old Flamenco style to her songwriting that stays true in her mixing and of course this hauntingly beautiful voice. It’s no wonder she and James’ duet in this track blends so well together.
