Feeling a little Faded, Booth readers? I kinda hope not since, as of my writing, it’s only 11 in the morning. But if you are, you’re in good company; CVIRO‘s first DJBooth feature and latest single, released along with visuals by RICO, finds the Australian recording artist in an acute state of intoxication. GXNXVS‘s fractured samples, ambient synths and reverb-soaked percussion back the unsigned crooner as he describes a evening of liquor-soaked hedonism, showcasing a vocal presence as angelic as his lyrics are debauched. If that description reminds you of a certain Abel Tesfaye, you’re not on the wrong track, but this joint’s understated catchiness suggests that CVIRO’s more than just another follower of of the alt-R&B zeitgeist. Enough out of me, though—are you feeling it? If so, watch our pages for more fresh cuts leading up to the July release of debut EP Elevation.
