The last time Norwegian based, Los Angeles born artist Flores teamed up with London’s Maths Time Joy, I found myself in music heaven. Half a year ago, Maths Time Joy unleashed a dusky beauty named After Hours. Now, the two join forces once more as Flores releases an equally dusky and sensually draped slow burner named Afterglow, produced by Maths Time Joy. Afterglow, Flores’ debut single, is a moist and steamy R&B ballad steeped in darkly haunting electronica strikingly embossed with futuristic qualities. Despite its meticulous pace and cushioned softness, Afterglow manages to build to heart compressing intensity. Flores’ voice grows ever despairing as the song swells to a level of taut, urgent despair that leaves me feeling like the very air around me is about to burst into flames.
