Tropics – “Don’t You Know”

tropics 600x400 Tropics   Dont You Know

The fact that Chris Ward aka Tropics’ own voice appears only fleetingly in “Don’t You Know” make them all the more powerful. The track starts with a gently jazzy feel, but evolves and morphs as mellow keyboards rise and fall before Ward’s emotion-filled vocals tell us “my body can take no more.” The use of a wistful vocal sample only adds to the slow moving beauty of a song which floats serenely, unobtrusively past, like a speck of dust in a sunlit study.

“Don’t You Know” is on Tropics’ Home & Consonance EP, out April 23.
