A sequel that’s faster, flashier and more bombastic than the original
Nigo Feat Ben Lee Freediving Mo'Wax
One's a painfully hip Japanese clothing designer whose simian-flavoured skate
couture is beloved of theBeastie Boys. The other's a mumbling Aussie
singer-songwriter whose idling jangle is beloved of the Beastie Boys. The
song's a priority-play on Xfm. Doesn't bode well, does it?
Well, hush your
cynical mouths, because 'Freediving', the first single off Nigo's
forthcoming 'Apesounds' album, is sunshine slacker-pop of the finest
variety, and a perfectly winning example of Brian Wilson-esque whimsy.
Taking the psychedelic keyboard riff from 'Good Vibrations' as its
starting point, 'Freediving' is a four-minute excursion into foggy-headed
melancholia, with the wizened-before-his-time Lee murmuring, "Watch out who you put your trust in", as he
absent-mindedly waxes his surfboard and stares forlornly out into the sea.
The package also includes a Stereo MCs remix which could feasibly be used
to sell mid-range hatchback cars at some point in the near future.
