A solo act form the remnants of one of our favourite British bands that disappeared: Kid British. Now making music and performing under the moniker Bipolar Sunshine, Adio Marchant is staying on the scene. He’s had a busy time of it so far having played at love box and having sets at reading and leeds. He also teamed up with Rudimental on a project for Bacardi Beginnings where they were challenged to create a track in 24 hours. The result was a gorgeous, funky track called ‘Distance’.
However iTunes have gifted us with his track Rivers. It’s a refreshing song after all the folk and electronica stuff that is highly and in some cases over produced. So with a very under produced track that makes me think of a grown up Kid British vibe, Rivers opens with an atmospheric low spoken word and guitar sound. Adio’s vocals enter with a sound that makes it sound like he’s in an open hall and is then accompanied by a beautiful layering sound before being stripped back to an atmospheric passage where he sing ‘been low, but I been higher’.
This is such a summery, homey sounding track. The same king of sound that first attracted to me to Kid British when they firs popped on the scene. Manchester have a lot of talent to offer and Bipolar Sunshine is definitely worth checking out. Fingers crossed he doesn’t fizzle away like the group. We’re fans already.
