High Focus’ Ed Scissor has been working closely with Glaswegian producer Lamplighter since the release of their 2012 debut collaboration project Better.Luck.Next.Life, creating their own brand of sinisterly insightful music, featuring self-exploratory bars from Scissor over the sparse yet inspiring soundscape of Lamplighter’s productions.
Their latest single comes ahead of their upcoming album Tell Them It’s Winter, which is due for release via High Focus on July 15th. The album is described as ‘unmistakably cinematic, steeped in vision and verve, ‘Tell Them It’s Winter’ ruminates over life-and-lust-and-love before settling on the notion that every human being is on the hunt for the same thing’, and is set to give us the feels. “Hyperballad” is the latest offering from the album, with the video cleverly exploring the creative process of the duo over alluring piano loops and moody, deeply-vocalled lyricism. Not a pair to be slept on.
