Why do we like this?

It's always exciting when you catch onto an artist early on, and get to watch their talent and style unfold before your eyes. Such is the case with Melbourne duo Hoodlem. Having discovered them probably three years ago, they've certainly kept me guessing - earlier this year they released "Kintsugi," their first track in more than a year. Now comes "4Real," and it sounds unlike anything they've released before. Gone are the R&B elements, replaced instead by a seductive late-night house vibe. 

The main thing I love about this song is that it stands out. A deep, shuffling rhythm that constantly feels like it's about to run away, a full palette of synth embellishments, and delicate female vocals backed by angelic harmonies are nothing new. Yet Hoodlem have taken these elements and made them interesting, unique and coyly flirtatious. 

For me, this was a really unexpected sound for the Melbourne two-piece, and I'm curious as to what they'll release next.
