We Can Talk is the latest release on Belgium's brilliant Eskimo from Satin Jackets. Featuring Emma Brammer on vocals, it's a straight-up house-influenced pop record and it comes with the announcement of the duo's debut album. On the release German producer Time Bernhardt and lead performer Den Ishu said:
"We Can Talk sets the pace for the upcoming album … the album itself will be diverse and versatile. Two years of our heart and soul poured into it so it’s going to be the full listening experience."
The track layers looped piano melodies, string effects and tight percussion together with Brammer's gorgeously infectious vocals. The London-based artist explains the lyrics behind the song as dealing with your first love when things go wrong:
"I was hooked on the track [from] the first time. The lyrics are about the exciting and painful first love maybe it's not so good for you but it feels historical. Loved working with Tim just good vibes and good tunes."
The original is classic Eskimo stuff - sunny and melodic. Packaged up with it in this release is a remix from Munich-resident, Portuguese-native Moullinex. He deconstructs much of the original to create a more-cosmic sounding version with lots of space given over to that vocal. It culminates in a deep, acid-soaked crescendo complete with a cool punk-funk bassline. Finally German producer Larse rounds out the release with a darker dub version.
