Inside My Head is an excellent electronic standout full of dreamy sounds from Melbourne friends and labelmates Tim Shiel and Hemm (aka art-pop duo Juice Webster and R.P. Downie). It’s actually the sixth and final single from Tim’s album Distractions One, which features Australian artists Genesis Owusu, Braille Face, Kaitlin Keegan, NIK NAVY, and more.
The aesthetics of the track count on the moodiness of the listener, as the layering increases producing a final-end rich breakbeat mosaic. It has such finesse so just drop it on your playlist! Listening to the full album though – it’s just so beautiful beyond description, a soul-elevator that will have you thinking for more in any music destination you travel to.
