Following on his impressive debut single “Quand C’est Mou”, Melbourne artist Hugh Klein has returned with his second offering named “Sensitive”. The soulful new track involves layers of instrumentation being stacked skillfully, balancing melodies and rhythms. “Sensitive” an immersive piece of music. The record was released on the label Lekker Collective.
“The lyrics, deliberately spaced and brief, originate from a notebook of short poems I kept while residing in Pantin, France. Experiencing connection in a new location of the world became particularly important and I was making my first findings of incredible and unmatched intimacy through finding genuine connection. There is nothing more intimate than two minds that completely understand each other – ‘Sensitive’ pays homage to this concept and is designed to bring your attention to the details – to sit in the groove and realise the underlying narrative the arrangement delivers. In its initial stages, I was frequently consuming a large amount of piano centric jazz ballads and low felt neo-soul with tight and fast percussive elements – what has been a point of interest in a vast number of current jazz musicians. Finding particular underlying patterns and rhythmic ideas in these faster grooves is a real challenge, though equally exciting. The track was completely recorded over multiple jam sessions between keys/vocals and the initial groove”– Hugh Klein
