Brand new R&S division Chewy Motto fly the nest with a beautiful lo-fi left-sided beat soul set from mysterious transatlantic troupe Quays. Armed with a dreamy sense of melody and a sci-fi sense of soul, Quays lay down four distinctive chapters: "Falling Down On Me" a space-aged future soul serenade and trippy time signatures, "By Your Side" flips and flops with a wavy waft of The Orient while "Stay With Me" takes more of a house route with its persistent kicks and Jamie xx-style taste for star-lit adventure. "Out Cold" closes on a stark, angular reconstruction of UKG elements. Show stopping.
