Hermitude Collab With BJ The Chicago Kid & Buddy On ONEFOURTHREE
Partnering with Hypebeast, Australia's Hermitude drop their brand new track "OneFourThree," featuring vocals from superstars Buddy and BJ The Chicago Kid. The hip-hop influenced electronic innovators have worked tirelessly to carve out a special nook in the music scene. "OneFourThree" is the epitome of a summer groove, bending genres and bridging the gap between electronic music and hip-hop.
A finger on the Dilla pulse, BJ The Chicago Kid croons with so much soul, while Buddy skillfully hits the verse. Both of these artists boast incredible collaborations, including BJ's work with Kendrick Lamar, Jill Scott and Dr Dre and Buddy's work with J. Cole, including featuring in his Dreamville Documentary.
"It was crazy to see Buddy and BJ throw down in the studio. Buddy's raps are razor-sharp, all written in the booth and BJ's silky voice and amazing harmony style had everyone in awe. It's been a real blessing to work with these high caliber artists. Watching the way they approach songwriting and morph into character when they record has been super inspiring for us," says the duo.
Today, Hermitude also announce their new album Pollyanarchy, set for release this Fall. A reflection on finding clarity in the chaos, the eleven-track album brags an assemblage of features, including previously released tracks with Bibi Bourelly, Soaky Sirens, Vory, Hoodlem and more.
"OneFourThree" stands as a beacon of Hermitude's growth and development as artists originally from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, and now heading out on their biggest headline tour, with shows in Korea, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, USA, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.
