Stream: Bad Bones – You


Since featuring her as an Inbound act in our physical act last year, Dublin based producer and visual artist Sal Stapelton AKA Bad Bones has been busy on the live front, including slots at Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Forbidden Fruit Festival, as well as shows with All Tvvins and Talos.

Mirroring this upswing is the sheer grit and confidence of new single ‘You’. Set for release via DiaXDem on Friday, the single is a labyrinthine blast of nuanced beats, layered samples and a host of effects-soaked textures and vocals that coalesce as an infinitely listenable whole. Where previous single including ‘Lang’, ‘Beg’ and ‘Worship’ set up the intrigue, ‘You’ comprehensively confirms Stapleton as a fast-rising force to be reckoned with.
