Australian production duo Flight Facilities
is back with "Stranded."
The song features Broods
, Reggie Watts
, and Saro as well as additional instrumentation from Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint
(drums), Piers Lane (piano), and Touch Sensitive (bass).
The song starts out as a bit of a piano ballad with Broods' Georgia Nott on vocals. The underlying Daft Punk-esque groove slowly fades up to the front as Saro joins in for a stunning duet with Nott. There are a bunch of false starts as different singers take over until around the 4:10 mark, when the drums finally kick in. The duo also uses beautiful strings throughout. As all the singers mesh together with their own style at the end, it's a really powerful finish - and just a powerful tune overall. We've been patiently waiting for this moment, and we're ecstatic that Flight Facilities has returned.
