London-based electronic artist SBTRKT returned today with “Gloss,” a glazed-over instrumental track that's filled to the brim with marimba chord progressions. He uploaded the track to his SoundCloud this morning without much context, although we know from chatting with him in late March that he's got an EP due for release sometime this fall. Could this be the first track? It seems like an unrelated tease because it'd be difficult in imagining his go-to vocalist Sampha (or anyone else for that matter) competing with the overclouded, low-frequency-filling lead synth. But just knowing SBTRKT is interested in making and sharing new music right now is enough for us.
