When it comes to TNGHT, expect the unexpected. The trailblazing trap duo, comprised of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, blew up with one of my favorite debut EPs in recent memory and are back with a new track, “Acrylics.”
“Acrylics” starts off ominously with a haunting piano lullaby that soon gives way to a satisfying beat drop. The song begins to find its groove in the ensuing frantic synth line, but once you think it’s nearing its musical apex, Mohawke and Lunice give you a quick sock in the face with a heavy bombardment of bass.
“Acrylics” is textbook TNGHT; what makes the duo so special is their ability to consistently raise the stakes, energy and emotion with every drop. TNGHT tries to make each explosion bigger than the last, leaving me wondering how they’re possibly going to top this one. Knowing them, though, they definitely will.
This was dropped on their Soundcloud page with the note, “A new one track single from TNGHT to blow up the road to Coachella with some select headline US dates,” so start salivating at the thought of experiencing this live.
