Melodic techno duo ÅNDfØLK unite with Deanna Leigh on “My Favourite Kind.” The single is paired with a mind-altering animation!
ÅNDfØLK are a mysterious duo that live for the opportunity to intertwine house music, folk tales, and animations. Their live shows lean into the psychedelic and offer show-goers the chance to leave their bodies under the guidance of profound introspective sound palates. The same can be said about their personal discography. Look at their first official release of the year, “Rollin.” That tune tapped deep into the brain using spiraling synths and eccentric sound details to let the weird run rampant. Now, their second offering of 2023 has arrived, and it’s equally fascinating.
Out now on Caramel Records, “My Favourite Kind” featuring Deanna Leigh was re-written three times in the quest to achieve maximum effect. ÅNDfØLK made it clear that they felt that the original vision felt very “commercial,” and they were striving for something much stronger and, maybe even more importantly, unique from all of the other melodic techno tunes floating around the airwaves these days. They ultimately created a track that burns with deep and unruly flavors, allowing the mind to float off in a cloud of imagination.
In discussing the elements, ÅNDfØLK noted, “We love when a song’s giving enough oomph, but at the same time, it gives you the release and the breath.” Yes, oomph and release is certainly the name of the game on this one. After stirring in Deanna Leigh’s pristine performance, we have the makings of a major dance floor gem. All that’s left to do is add some rousing visuals and watch as freedom of expression seeps into the masses. ÅNDfØLK understands the visual impact on the live circuit, and their M.C. Escher-inspired music video attests to this. It features black and white critters climbing walls and scaling staircases, set within a daunting cityscape and brought to life with a dizzying spin.
