LISTEN: REYKO – ‘Hierba Mala’

Soft vocals and atmospheric electronics combine on ‘Hierba Mala’, the latest single from London-based electro-pop duo REYKO. Translating in Spanish as “bad weed”, the song personifies a toxic person and the struggle of someone who’s trying to separate themselves from this unhealthy union.

Consisting of vocalist Soleil and producer Igor, REYKO began making music together on the final project for Igor’s masters degree in music production. Since then, the pair have been busy creating their sultry sounds by mixing numerous styles together, including elements from genres like electro, indie, and trap.

Drenched in lo-fi beats and cinematic synths, ‘Hierba Mala’ is a brooding two and a half minutes of uncertainty, accompanied by an equally moody set of visuals that show the duo walking around London at night. With their soothing, catchy electronic tunes, REYKO continue to impress us with their intoxicating music.
