Pipes by Varsity Star
Pipes is the second fantastic single from American artist Varsity Star's upcoming mini-album More Than Anything.
More Than Anything is the latest release from this prolific musician and producer. Now based in Brooklyn after growing up in Boston and spending time in Berlin where he connected with electronic music, Varsity Star is an accomplished upright bassist. He has played as a multi-genre sideman alongside the likes of Adrianne Lenker, on TV for Saturday Night Live, and in all manner of Brooklyn venues, basements, and even a Danish church. He brings his formal playing chops as well as a unique perspective on the groove to this new album, which melds jazz thinking and electronic music in absorbing new ways.
The single "Pipes" is a gorgeous fusion of inventive melody and heartwarming harmony. Seamlessly melting electronic synthesis with organic groove, the track ascends to the heavens on lush arps and leggy drums. The track recalls the early work of artists like Four Tet and brings plenty of fresh perspectives.
