Favela - Easy Yoke 


Although Favela is the name for ghettos in Brazil (you can learn so many new things from Tunes4loons), here we are referring to a Leeds based producer who has 3 tracks to his name. "Easy Yoke" is probably the best that Favela has to offer so far, and it's a great nugget of atmospheric indie pop. To elaborate, the closest musical doppelgänger I can elect would be Washed Out. Both artists possess the same soaring vocals, swirly beats / synths, and a classical element. In "Easy Yoke," strings are layered over the entire production beautifully. And while it's a pretty douchey label, Favela really embodies the chillwave  genre, right down to the EP artwork. Nothing says chillwave like a hipster lumberjack rowing a boat amiright?! Anyways, listen to this, especially if it's rainy. It will feel right I promise.
