Electronic crime noir Current Eternal, the alias of beatmaker/sound manipulator extraordinaire Nikky French, has a new jam called “Take A Shine” that plays out like a futuristic detective theme song. Thumping beats mixed with ominous synths and electronics, plus a string section, “Take A Shine” creeps along slowly, but adds new sonic quirks seemingly every step of the way. The soothing piano and semi-hushed vocals are inviting, while the culmination of all the wild little bells and whistles in the background can’t help but build tension. This would be killer on a Blade Runner 3 soundtrack, that’s for sure.
