Trip-Hop meets R&B
Mala's breathy, vintage, alto crackles over the gorgeous trip-hop groove of "Focus," a downtempo electronic track from Columbus, Ohio. One of the defining features of downtempo genres like trip-hop, chillstep, etc. is their musical texture, and "Focus" has an incredibly warm texture comprised of vinyl fuzz, strings and other orchestral samples, and a patient, slow drum beat. There are occasional moments when Mala's voice falls just a little flat, but all in all, this song is a sexy and beautiful addition to the family; perfect for those hazy, surreal moments of life in which reality might get a little blurry.
"Focus" is reminiscent of well-known artists such as Massive Attack
