Alright we’ll admit it, we’re total Harvey Causon and Gabriel Gifford fan boys. If there was a t-shirt, we’d buy it. We’ll settle for another fine collab though. Causon’s vocals on ‘Worn You’ are emotive and nuanced. The tone of his delivery matches the story that he weaves sublimely. The anguish we felt at the point the vocal returns over the delicate piano in the breakdown is nothing short of spellbinding. The sonic landscape painted by Gifford for the track is like a multi-textured blanket that wraps but never once smothers the main feature (Causon’s vocal). Every individual detail is audible independent of the others whilst simultaneously complimenting them. The impact he is able to create with his low frequency drops is formidable but never out of balance with the direction the track takes. Gifford’s continual improvement towards mastery of the production craft has us giddy with anticipation each time we learn of a new collaboration. Let’s hope there are many more between these two titans of the UK #NewMusic scene in 2018.
