Anjunadeep‘s amorphous pop-songwriters-turned-deep-house-duo, Eli & Fur, are formally returning to the Anjunabeats subsidiary for one more EP launch, entitled Into The Night. Tuesday, the London outfit shared the EP’s title monitor: an ethereal deep-house harbinger to the full-length challenge. The monitor bears Eli & Fur’s exceedingly sultry and idealistic earmark, in fact.
Reverie is ever within the air with these two. As the monitor opens, the atmospheric duo’s personal languorous vocals part in, affording the monitor an otherworldly advantage. Soon, the cinematic nature of Eli & Fur’s sound design grows more and more obvious in each the providing’s lyrical theme and stylistic strategy. The swirling synth line juxtaposed in opposition to calming woodblock percussion texturizes the monitor, whereas the terse lyrical musings supply additional introspective pressure: “You jogged my memory of somethin’ / Now it’s taking over all my time.”
Paradox and nostalgia have been driving by strains in Eli & Fur’s catalog for years, coming to a crest on their final Anjunadeep EP, Night Blooming Jasmine. While “Parfume” embodies how readily our olfactory techniques are inclined to reminisce (“Is this for actual or one thing higher?”) by the scents of bygone lovers, “Something Was Real” performs on the fleeting, imperfect nature of reminiscence and our visceral internal life.
“Sometimes you end up shutting off and making excuses about why to not join with how you are feeling on an emotional stage,” the pair says a latest press assertion on the monitor. “Taking the plunge into one thing totally different to your common routine is extremely liberating. ‘Into The Night’ is about that feeling, moving into the unknown and embracing one thing you by no means knew you wanted.”
