Alina Baraz is apparently an LA based singer, originally from Ohio, and Galimatias is a Danish producer, specializing in electronic music. The pair are, quite literally, a match made in heaven, sonically speaking. I’m almost positive this is what the angels listen to before going to sleep.
Urban Flora is a beautiful adventure in sound that spans 8 tracks and lasts for a little more than a half hour. The project began in 2013 after the two met via Soundcloud and was released in May of this year. How I hadn’t heard it before now is beyond me. But thank god for the text I got tonight telling me to listen to Urban Flora (shout out to you Grace).
From beautiful vocals, courtesy of Alina, to an extravagant array of sounds from Galimatias this is one of the better projects I’ve heard this year. Urban Flora is the ideal music to play while you’re falling asleep or while you’re hanging out with your significant other. Hopefully the duo has some more music to share with us in the near future, but for now I’m content with listening to this on repeat.
