This new one from Brasstracks couldn’t have arrived at a better time. As the summer heat quickly begins to recede from its peak last week, “Those Who Know” is tailor-made for driving with the windows down and soaking up some of the best weather of the year in Los Angeles. Last night I drove through a winding canyon with a cool breeze flowing through my car, and looking back, the only thing that could’ve made that drive better would be this single as its soundtrack…now that I think about it, having a lovely lady in the passenger’s seat might’ve been a nice addition too, so I guess that’s two things!
That being said, it’s dope to hear a single be so infectious without popping out in ways that listeners have come to expect from the first taste of a new project. There’s so much replay value here and so many layers to digest with each successive listen from an act that’s made their name through a fresh, nuanced approach to electronic music. Just as much as I look forward to hearing this during my next drive, I’m excited to don a pair of headphones and dig into the subtleties of “Those Who Know” while waiting for Brasstracks’ next release.
