Hey do you remember chill-wave? I know it was like a few years ago and you just got another tweet and Instagram and Snapchat and what were we talking about? Oh right, a made up genre that no one liked the name of so the internet decided to kill it, like there aren’t still waves of chill out there. But, if anyone deserved to make it through all that hoop-la it was Small Black, which they proved perfectly with last years sophomore album,¬†Limits Of Desire. They managed to strip down their layer-heavy music, elements that really defined bands like Washed Out and Neon Indian five years ago, and not rely on a hundred different samples to make their songs interesting.

Here we have “Lines Of Latitude,” off their forthcoming appropriately-titled Real People EP and we find Small Black continuing to do less things way way better. Frankie Rose does a wonderful job of barely being noticed here yet really rounding out Small Black’s new minimalistic approach beautifully. Chill out to the new track below.
