Kilter - I Hear You
28 Apr 2017
Sydney-based producer shares his thumping new single "I Hear
You" which premiered via triple j's Good Nights and announced
a date for his forthcoming debut LP Through The Distortion backed
by a live national tour for June.
In pure Kilter style, “I Hear You” starts slow and ends big, its crafty formatting allowing a climactic, exhilarating release. With each listen, another layer of wild, melodic ambience is unveiled as his impeccable production abilities shine through.
From Kilter: "[A] weird beat idea that I had sidelined for almost a year before it found its feet. My initial writing on this song was focused around the relationship between the growling bass sound and the shifting half time/double time feel in the percussion. It was weird but I felt there was something to it."
In past years, Kilter has transformed from a young, aspiring producer to a multi-instrumental electronic-lord with a collective audience from all corners of the globe. Both “They Don’t Know Us” and “Count On Me” received rotation on triple j, nods from Rolling Stone, as well as millions of streams online. Last year Kilter maintained a manic touring schedule, hitting the UK and European festival season before returning home for a string of national headline shows and festival appearances at Falls Festival, Southbound and Bay Dreams. Kilter is currently in the US on his first ever North American headline tour, and next, he heads off on a national run of dates throughout June and July, coinciding with his Splendour In The Grass 2017 performance.
Through The Distortion is a wholly realised body of work, taking two years to perfect. With just a few months before its release, Kilter has announced an album bundle available for pre-order below. For now though, hear this and sit tight – we have a feeling Kilter’s return home will be even bigger than the last.
