As Stereosonic prepares to kick off Australia’s summer this weekend, one of the country’s top musical exports is giving the rest of the world Aussie envy. “Jaguar” is the latest track from dream duo What So Not, and it seems both Flume and Emoh Instead pulled out every trick in their proverbial bag. Though shimmering vocals first beckon the listener through the aural beaded curtain, with stealth synths stalking between hi hats and fat brass it is the beat that goes in for the kill: If indie trap was a genre, it very well might cite this tune as its foundation. With builds, sonic blooms and a bass bone structure, for both Sweat It Out and OWSLA, “Jaguar” is one big catch.
