Fortunes. – ‘501’s’ | Single Review

Fresh off their recent signing with Aussie electronic power-label Future Classic, New Zealand duo Fortunes. have released their latest offering in the form of “501’s”. Experiencing a quickly swelling following over the past year since the success of their 2015 Hoodie EP, the group is only expected to enjoy a wider listening audience with the release of their new single.

Producer Barnaby Matthews gifts us with a beat that encapsulates the warm summer night mood transporting you to a chilled out sunset beach party with his silky smooth synths and punchy kicks. Conor McCabe builds on this, laying down the slick talking, soul-oozing vocals that reflect the duo’s noted D’Angelo influence. The single supplies the perfect blend of feel good electronic music with the passion of R&B and zest of Hip Hop, acting as a stark depiction of the underlying promise the duo show. Judging from this newest addition to their already impressive music catalogue, it’s obvious to see that Fortunes. are onto something.
