Break Apart (feat. Rhye)
Following last month’s hypnotic single “Kerala,” Bonobo (Simon Green) has released another glimpse of his upcoming album, Migration, out January 13 on Ninja Tune. On “Break Apart” Green recruits Michael Milosh (better known as Rhye), and the result is a stunningly intimate track. Milosh’s voice has always had a liquid and elusive quality, at once mournful and seductive. It’s the perfect ambivalence for a breakup track in which the breakup isn’t a rupture so much as a slow drifting away, as Milosh sings, “You’re my favorite, you’re my favorite / But we’re phasing, but we’re phasing.” Listen below.
