PillowTalk - Far from heaven EP & Video



When it comes to making love PillowTalk can definitely teach you a thing or two based on their latest sleazy release on Wolf + Lamb. The Far From Heaven EP is pretty much sex music.
Far From Heaven is a four track EP which, on two tracks, goes deeper into song based r&b than have the trio before, but which also gets a little more energised and dancefloor aligned for the other two. An accomplished and underlying musicality, though, is never far away..

Tracklist:

1. Heavens Gate
2. Weekend Girl
3. Far From Home
4. Street Walker


"Heavens Gate" is a delicate disco lullaby where claps, gentle chords and one finger notes all drift around each other as a breathy vocal hangs in the air. It’s rinsed with an 80s innocence and comes across with a heartfelt but tongue-in-cheek cool.





"Weekend Girl" is a steamy R&B charmer which snakes its way under your skin with wet, echoing claps, tinkling melodies and a seductive 90s male vocal (which turns to coy, softly spoken rap) all coalescing into the creamiest of creamy slo-jams which its impossible not to love, frankly.





"Far From Home" is a gaunt house jam with eerie synth work, purposeful male vocal and subtle but effective pop-house baseline.





"Street Walker" is a steady Roland beat stripped to its core with a magnetic vocal performance to fill the void and pull you in while a horn-like bassline burping out over and over as hi-hats and claps grow ever louder in the background.
