“Flat Footed” is a new track from Zhund, a Montréal-based music producer. Following two atmospheric EPs in 2017s Miami Odyssey and 2019’s Dusty, Zhund continues the latter’s lo-fi charm with “Flat Footed.” Twinkling keys and exotic woodwinds carry the track’s lushly hypnotic glow. Caressing waves of sound complement understated vocals, which maintain a safe distance from dominating the mix. Touting a background fit for a lo-fi hip-hop playlist, though with a vocal-laden pull suitable for pop-minded moments, “Flat Footed” succeeds with easily enjoyable pleasantries.
“Flat Footed” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush Indie Electronic.
