I’ve not covered anything from Mura Masa in a long time, but this is just wonderful.
Michl has previously toured with Mura Masa, Elohim and Bao (of Vampire Weekend), giving you some idea of the wonky pop music he specialises in.
A collaboration between LA based musician Michl and Mura Masa, Better With You is a surprising song that manages to be one part earnest ballad and one part future electro R&B joint. With heartfelt lyrics, simple piano keys and boatload of distorted bass this track is wonderfully all over the place.
I love the simplicity of the message of this track. In Michl’s own words:
"I tend to do overcomplicate everything. But sometimes there isn't much to mess up. When you love and are loved back, everything else becomes irrelevant."
