East London trio VRWRK aim to play with nostalgia and musical stylings as they return to their electronica roots with ‘Fools’. Joining forces with soulful vocalist Salem Khazali just over a year ago, producers Matt Sey and Jergan Callebaut spent the time experimenting with the way hard electronics and playful pop merge with indie earworms like ‘Face It’ and ‘Hearts Beating In Sync’.
Now, the trio present ‘Fools’, splicing together the decadence of the ‘90s rave scenes and UK Garage culture —just before their Corsica Studios debut this week on 1 November.
Speaking on the track which layers futuristic synths and longing vocals, the track is ‘about feeling alone in crowded spaces, and leaving the room for a moment in a loud place to be in your own head,’ vocalist Salem says.
After playing headline shows, major European festivals (Rock Werchter, Pukkelpop), Amsterdam Dance Event, Eurosonic, shows for Paris based fashion Brand Hermès and Birthdays Dalston, this latest track is the introduction to a new phase of the electronica-pop hybrid.
‘Fools’ is out now on Run Tell Secrecy / Kobalt, check it out below.
