Biiko and ttypes have just released their latest single, "Mixee," and it's a beautiful blend of indie and electronic sounds.
As the solo project of Grand Rapids, Michigan songwriter Tim Krauss, ttypes has always been difficult to pin down to just one genre. On "Mixee," Krauss blends ambient instrumental with piano pop, rock, and electronic pop, creating a unique sound that is all his own.
Krauss has cited the books of Ursula K. LeGuin as a major source of inspiration for his music, and this is evident in the political undertones of "Mixee." Despite its political message, however, the song is a nostalgic and brokenhearted plea to an ex-lover, making it relatable to anyone who has experienced heartbreak.
Musician Biiko adds an additional layer of dreaminess and atmosphere to the track with their lounge jazz and electronic psych pop influences. The result is a song that is both introspective and thought-provoking, with a sound that harkens back to the classic pop duets of the 1950s and 60s.
Overall, "Mixee" is a truly impressive release from Biiko and ttypes, showcasing their ability to blend different genres and create a unique and emotional sound. Fans of indie and electronic music alike will find something to love in this latest single.
