EDITORS’ NOTES

Los Angeles' Alina Baraz and Denmark's Galimatias never break a sweat on their immaculately chilled debut EP, but their languid, soulful downtempo is sure to quicken pulses. Channeling Sade and Lana Del Rey, Baraz coos come-ons in a silky whisper that's both sultry and strangely innocent. "I could be your fantasy," she sighs on "Fantasy," and on "Can I," she asks, "Will you let me be your getaway?" Galimatias' slow-motion beats and hazy synths swirl like smoke, and "Maybe," the EP's slowest cut, suggests R&B on the verge of dissolution.

About Alina Baraz

Alina Baraz is a singer and songwriter whose uniformly mellow material flits between downtempo electronica and slightly left-of-center R&B. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio but based in Los Angeles, California following a creative epiphany, Baraz gained some notice in 2013 through her collaborations with producers Galimatias ("Drift," "Make You Feel") and ESTA ("Paradise"). Baraz and Denmark native Galimatias developed a deeper creative partnership, instigated by Baraz via SoundCloud, which birthed Urban Flora. Credited to both artists, the eight-track EP was released by the Ultra label in May 2015 and debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at number 111. Baraz followed up in early 2017 with a new collaborative single, "Electric," this time featuring guest vocalist Khalid. ~ Andy Kellman
