The English soul-groove duo FIKA were introduced last year.
Their latest track Here To Stay, whilst also something to rest up the heels on the desk, is a track with more of a stop-start motion, giving it a more shiny veneer, though once you start to scratch beneath the plastic coating there is plenty to keep the ears engaged.
A glacial electronica is weaved around a gazey-RnB guitar that affords Here To Stay a dreamy haziness while the percussion creates context, it is merely the, what to me is, over production of vocals that causes me to hesitate – however that is perhaps not a surprise to those who have stayed with the site for any length of time – if it isn’t raw and still dripping juices I will be likely to be reticent – so don’t take my thoughts on post production effects as anything more than – to be expected. Were I not to think Here To Stay has much to add to the day, I wouldn’t ask you to consider spending time having a listen.
