Flying Lotus has returned with another new song from the upcoming Netflix original anime series Yasuke, which is set to drop on April 29th. In addition to the Thundercat-assisted “Black Gold,” which is reportedly set to be the show’s theme song, FlyLo has also served up the closing credits by way of Niki Randa-assisted “Between Memories (Instrumental).”
Off the bat, FlyLo’s largely instrumental track is extremely atmospheric, combining swirling synthesizers, shuffling percussion, and a wispy vocal melody from Randa. Though lyrically sparse, the song still manages to conjure heightened emotions as FlyLo’s musical elements coalesce; there’s power in his harmonies, and the eclectic producer deftly straddles the line between inspiring and melancholic. It’s a testament to his ability to take listeners on journeys, and the fact he’s able to evoke such powerful emotions within such a brief runtime speaks to his prodigious imagination.
