North Elements x Wayfarer// (feat. Denitia) - Break

Australian producers Wayfarer// and North Elements have just teamed to present us with a beautifully crafted slice of R&B-infused electronica called "Break", which sees the pair enlisting the vocal and lyrical talents of New York City-based musician Denitia Odigie (of Denitia and Sene), whose soulful strains soar over textured beats, spacious production and pulsating synths. "Break" brings together three artists of varied creative backgrounds and effortlessly blends together a trifecta of styles into a vibrant, slightly dreamlike offering which is equal parts soothing and intriguing. The track was mastered by heavyweight Grammy-nominated engineer Andre Eremin (Chet Faker, Lanks, Kllo, and Hiatus Kaiyote).

Speaking on the track, North Elements explains:

"I've always been fascinated by the Japanese art form, Kintsugi, the art of embracing damage. This song is a romanticism of this same concept. Your imperfections and impermanence make you a work of art, aptly reflected through the artwork created by Berlin based Tala Who."

Meanwhile, Denitia adds:

"I've been feeling extra intense lately, and these days, the world feels like it's constantly caving in… when I find something I really want, it feels fragile and urgent. The pressure and the need to live truly in the moment when nothing else is ever promised... it's beautiful and scary all at once... To find someone to fall apart with, it's good company."

Listen to "Break" below.

"Break" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via The 405.
