Listen to RUMTUM's new single 'Tropic Air'

MUMBAI: RUMTUM's new single Tropic Air drops in quickly with a fresh splash of wobbly tape synth and relaxed lo-fi drums. You can almost feel yourself driving up a winding tropical road as the track opens into different scenic views. The overcompressed tape sounds dance along the groove while the smooth, old-school baseline is set to cruise control. Pairs well with the perfect sunset.

Tropic Air is the second single from RUMTUM's upcoming LP Isles in Indigo. The album is the landing point where the story begins for musician and visual artist RUMTUM. While living in Hawaii and studying the coral reef around south Kona for two months, the LP was recorded on samplers and a Tascam tape deck. Returning to the mainland with only saturated rough drafts influenced this over-saturated lost island tape vibe. The recordings were finished at a mountain home in southern Colorado during the worldwide shutdown of COVID-19, it was an odd time to work on such an uplifting and mystical concept but allowed for escapism at its best.
