808s & Greatest Hits With His Nostalgic Track "Super Sentimental"
808s & Greatest Hits is the recording project of Melbourne’s Skube Burnell. Though the project is helmed and the songs are conceptualised by Burnell, 808s & Greatest Hits’ recorded material and live shows feature a revolving cast of friends and collaborators who allow the project to take unconventional and exciting detours along the journey with Burnell at the wheel. Previous incarnations of 808s & Greatest Hits have seen Skube Burnell collaborate with a 5-piece band and other recordings and performances have captured 808s at its most intimate and introspective from Skube alone. This time around, Skube Burnell’s spare time thanks to a locked down world allowed an album of songs to be crafted cleverly alongside Dylan Young (Way Dynamic, Snowy Band, Emma Russack). The album started as an eclectic suite of 16 songs written by Skube that were eventually honed and whittled down to a tidy selection of 8 - crafted, mutated and reworked to evolve into its final form - Greatest Hits II. Burnell begun working on the album in late 2019 whilst recording and mixing previous release Cabin Vibes. Early stages of recording took place between Skube and Dylan’s homes with Dylan serving as the primary producer and engineer on the tracks with John Lee from Phaedra also stepping in for ‘Maslow’s Pyramid’. Following the release of their newest single "Super Sentimental" They project a very soothing sound that will surly capture your ears. Starting the track with a slow beat leading onto his soft and luscious vocals they complete the track entirely. To explain the track it's about having that strong connection with the person that's always by your side, the one you care for, love and appreciate. Having that sentimental energy towards that person. It's one lovely track and anyone listening would truly enjoy. It would be just right for a late night drive or having a dinner with your lover. To the production and the vocals they grasp a very nostalgic track. Go stream "Super Sentimental" and check out their discography which is filled with outstanding tracks.
