A typical lead-up week before Splendour In The Grass is littered with last minute releases from Splendour acts – and 2016 is proving no exception.
Now British electronic duo Snakehips have called on the vocal services of Zayn Malik, who’s been having a pretty massive year as well. Cruel is the second track from Snakehips’ forthcoming debut album which is set to drop later this year – and it mashes Zayn’s soulful vocal style perfectly with a dark electro vibe.
Cut between Zayn’s increasingly recognisable style of singing on this one are warm synths and some super intricate percussion samples. Along with their other 2016 track All My Friends, this tune is another signal that Snakehips are moving away from their glitchier, sample-heavy style and embracing pop more closely.
