The Avalanches + Toro Y Moi – If I Was A Folkstar | New Music

Coming back after 16 years must not be easy: a lot of expectations and hype surround The Avalanches‘ new project Wildflower, coming almost two decades after the critically-acclaimed debut Since I Left You.


After having debuted the first single “Frankie Sinatra” – an infectious over-looped electro swing jingle featuring rappers Danny Brown and MF Doom – and having previewed some of their new tracks at Field Day, the Australian electronic band released a new single.


“If I Was A Folkstar” features guest appearance from chillwave superstar Toro Y Moi, and the single seems heavily inspired by the atmosphere of Bundick’s latest work. As a matter of fact, the track is a feel-good and breezy track, which leave aside the compulsive looping of “Frankie Sinatra” in favour of an airy instrumental perfect for long trips along the coast.


Listen to the track here and get ready for Wildflower, due out on July 8 via XL Recordings.

I speak as loud as the volume I listen to music, and this is probably symptomatic of my love for pop music: I love pop music because it is often unapologetically in-your-face, it shouts rather than tell, it drives you crazy. And after 21 years loving pop music, I think I’ve completely gone mad. It all started in 1997, when my mum bought me my first cassette: needless to say, it was ‘Barbie Girl’ by Aqua, and from that point on, it’s been a never-ending loving relationship between me and music. I study, work and live life part-time, and listen to music full-time.
