sir Was: “Deployed (ft. Little Dragon)” - 3 mins 57s
Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano lends her voice to this luminous piece of Scandi-electronica from producer sir Was. With both hidden behind neon LED sunglasses for much of co-director Damien Priest's promo, it's like a masquerade ball shot through a synthwave filter.
This ultimately suits the delicate soundscape of 'Deployed', however, as Aneka-inspired electronics and Nagano's airy vocals dance around a tight backbeat. Cool, crisp, and masterfully chilled, it almost justifies the purchase of LED shades. Almost.
