NYC’s REFS is at it again, enveloping us in neon hued, saccharine grooving nostalgia. New song Breeze is a synth shimmering, wavy undulating 80′s throwback that features Richard Saunders on sweet gooey vocals and James King on a hot molten saxophone. James is also known for his brilliant saxophone duties on M83′s Midnight City. Coincidentally, Breeze heavily reminds me of some of M83′s music, with plenty of chillwave meets disco glam. Zach Lipkins, the producer behind REFS, describes the track as “the feeling of cruising on the last evening of August, swerving towards the dusk… or your frost coated window peering out from the middle of winter”. Either way, whether cruising on a sweltering summer night or looking out at the snow from the cozy indoors, this is one steamy sensual, grand luxuriant jam.
