Bliss N Eso have returned with their first new slice of Aussie hip-hop since 2013’s Circus In The Sky.
It’s called Dopamine and it’s as dope as the name would suggest.
Packing an uplifting, piano-driven, almost Coldplay-style chorus and featuring Sydney rising stars Thief as guests, the heartfelt track also reps the first taste of the group’s forthcoming 6th studio LP.
Speaking with triple j, MC Bliss explained that the song was the result of the lads coming through some tough times.
“We’ve been at it for years now and it was the first time we took some time off and said ‘we’ve got to do a few personal things’. Eso was a bit of a drinker and he stopped drinking – which was a massive life change- and had a baby. It’s been really good for the writing process because it feels like we’re evolving as humans and channeling it into the music.
There’s a lot of evolution in the record in terms of us as humans as we come out of some tough times. One thing we noticed was as we injected more of ourselves into the music, we found that there was more and more people relating. Hearing that more and more as we toured around the world was such an encouraging thing.
I’m really excited about this record it, I think it’s going to be the best one yet.”
Bliss N Eso’s new album is due out some time in 2017.
