Download “I Krill You,” Helado Negro’s Humid New Single

Listen to the lead track from the multi-instrumentalist’s new full-length, Double Youth.

UPDATE 7/22/14: "I Krill You" has a dizzying video now; it features Negro's face and a barrage of blinking, color-shifting visuals. Watching it feels like trying to focus your eyes after staring at a bright light for too long. Watch it above.


A couple weeks back, we posted the new single from DFA Records' artist Sinkane. We also mentioned that, come fall, he'll head out on tour with likeminded multi-instrumentalist Helado Negro, the Florida-born son of Ecuadorians who has collaborated with Julianna Barwick. Today, we have the humid, rhythmically-pulsing lead track from Double Youth, Negro's own forthcoming project. "'I Krill You' is like silly putty that's been rolled around in caverns of my skull, picking up and morphing ideas of urges and obsessions," Negro says of the song, which—as usual—creates a very particular atmosphere. "It's about this dream that we all have, that desire to want more." Grab the single below for the reasonable price of an e-mail; Double Youth is out September 2nd via Asthmatic Kitty.
