With 'The Way We Crush', Melbourne’s Martin King deploys an emotive RnB vocal performance, flickering space-age rave synths and the rhythmic architecture of classic jungle/drum and bass to articulate the anxieties of taking things deeper with someone special. In his words, “In one way it is literally about crushing on someone, and how that manifests in the ways you act to one another. It's about the anxiety of wanting to take a relationship from a purely physical level to one with feelings.”

Best known as a founding member of Oscar + Martin and the Harpoons, in recent years Martin has collaborated with Banoffee on her Do I Make You Nervous? EP, and rocked Meredith, Falls and Sugar Mountain solo, as well as sharing the stages with Caribou, Metronomy and Four Tet. Released through Good Manners Music, 'The Way We Crush' points the way forward for Martin’s genre blending solo work, of which we can expect to hear a lot more over the course of 2017.
