On almost everything with The Avalanches' name on, they weave together a sonic tapestry that is the unmistakable sound of summer. The title track from their debut album Since I Left You is no exception - it’s an undeniable feel-good song that fills you with a warm nostalgic feeling. Since I Left You is an irresistibly catchy melting pot of guitars, flutes, beats and doo-wop that even comes with a heartwarming and uplifting music video.
You can’t help but think of sunshine, blue waters and good times as soon as you hear this gem of a track come blasting through some speakers making it almost purpose-built to soundtrack barbecues. It’s a complete sample frenzy that sounds colourful and vibrant and will have you questioning why it hasn’t been played in every DJ set you’ve ever seen.
