Lana Del Rey broke into the music scene this year with slow tragic songs, telling stories of the past and she quickly became a playlist favorite. Angus and Julia Stone have always been the go-to group in the land down under. We all have a sick and twisted hunger for beautiful music that hurts to listen to — perhaps because it makes us reflect on failed relationships or the general tragedy of the human condition. Thanks to Australian Hook N Sling, we can all enjoy our melancholy favorites without feeling like complete garbage.
Hook N Sling‘s skill for revamping downer tracks was seen with “Take You Higher” and he’s done it again with “Lumpy Videogame”. Hook N Sling dilutes the downer vibes of a song with light and airy background melodies that melt his tracks into a more playful reminded of our past.
Here’s one of his mixes to give you a more rounded view of Hook N Sling.
