Swedish artist & production duo Total Ape— Pär Almkvist and August Vinberg—have crafted a sound all their own. With reputable features from Iggy Azalea, Karol G, and Nico & Vinz, their debut EP, In a Haze, cements the duo’s presence as producers, artists, and collaborators.
With a debut release that catapulted the pair into the Top 10 of Spotify’s Global Viral Chart last year, these two Apes came out of the gate ambitious, with a sound suggestive of a seasoned career in the dangerously saturated market. This year alone saw official remixes for Selena Gomez & Marshmello, and Maroon 5, each displaying the duo’s knack for melody & predilection for a killer pop hook better than the last.
It’s no surprise that this release is laden with more of the same; pop-sensible hooks, top-tier features, and just enough bass to ensure that extra ‘oomph’ in your speakers. We see a different side of Azalea on this as well; sultry & understated in her delivery, ‘In a Haze’ has you instantly looking for the repeat button after first listen.
IN A HAZE is out now on Warner Bros. Records.
