Producer James Hinton has shared a new song as the Range. The track is titled “Bicameral” and it arrives with a surreal animated video. Check it out below.
Hinton’s most recent album as the Range was 2016’s Potential, which he followed with a documentary counterpart titled Superimpose. He joined Tourist (aka William Phillips) for the collaboration “Last” in 2020.
In a press release, Hinton shared a statement about the origins of “Bicameral”:
“Bicameral” represents the beginning of a move into a more ethereal space in my music. I began working on it while on a retreat in Nicaragua in 2016, and finished it in 2020 in Vermont, and so it uniquely captures a lot of the extreme positive and negative memories over that time. In this song the original vocal that I sampled—a song called “The Road” by the Eritrean singer Bemnet Tekleyohannes—is “When you lighten” but I like that the interpretation of “When you lied—when you lied to me” is equally readable as the phrase repeats and changes.
