There’s something super pop about the new New Navy single. Seriously fun, summery pop with A FREAKING VIBRASLAP! Also features a really lovely middle section just with some Uke.
Stream the single below, and make sure you purchase it when it comes out on Friday.
I loved the original version of this track when it came out – was one of those tracks that opened up my eyes to electronic music.
Now Sydney fellas New Navy have done a cover of it…and it’s actually really fucking good! Done in colab for their label Future Classic and clothing giant Le Coq Sportif.
Sure it’s pretty clubby and has all the drops…but it still kills. Also comes with a pretty saweet clip!
Sydney beatmaker extraodinaire Flume has had his way with New Navy‘s massife number Zimbabwe. I just came across it on Soundcloud and it is soooo nice. It is beaty, and I love the way it drops out at the end of some bars and then comes back bigger than ever on the big snare hit of the following bars. Gives what could have been just a super chilled track a big kick.
And we’re back.
Sorry about that break there.
To start back, we’ve got a pretty solid joint from Sydney gents New Navy. It’s called Zimbabwe and, for me, the song is made on that out-of-tune sounding whistle at the very top. It catches you off guard and kinda forces you to pay attention.
The track itself is a bit of a party track, very Holidaysesque and Vampire Weekendesque. There’s nothing wrong with that though. Every listen, you hear something new going on. Pretty percussive heavy (LIKE) and lots of little guitar lines.
Anyway, solid track. Check out the vid too. Their YouTube is a bit of a goldmine actually…well at least for the track Animals. Wows. Hope you dig…more to come!
