Bayou, half of the Double Denim imprint - home of acts like Brolin and Empress Of - debuted the salty and subtle 'Thugs' yesterday, via his forthcoming LP Loopback, out early next month.

Hari Ashurst (real name) flirts between the steady stomp of rising synths with feather-light vocals, giving rouse to a danceable and carefully crafted effort. Not quite like his previously released 'Airlock', which gives a dubby twist on Ashurt's so-so light vocal stylings, 'Thugs' offers a gentler version of what can be expected from Loopback.

Stream it below and look out for the LP May 12th.
