@betterlostthanstupid - the dance music supergroup comprising @davide-squillace, @martin-buttrich and @matthias-tanzmann - are back with a new single on @skintrecords / BMG, and an album is on the horizon. 'The Sky Is Too Low' is scuzzy banger that features JAW (@thenathandaisy) on vocals. On making the record, the group said: “Writing ‘The Sky Is Too Low’ was a challenge. Of all the tracks on the record it’s one of our favourites. When we started the groove it took us back to our early broken beat and hip hop roots. We wanted to bring broader styles to the record and Jaw and Jeff (Darko)’s vocals absolutely nail it, and helped take the tune to where we wanted it to go. It reminds us of a past time when we were just opening our ears to the rawness of that vibe.” Out May 17, buy/listen here: Spotify: https://BLTS.lnk.to/TSITLso iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/album/the-sky-is-too-low-single/1462645796?ls=1&app=itunes Apple Music: https://itunes.apple.com/album/the-sky-is-too-low-single/1462645796?ls=1
