Iuliano – Who Knows

The Italian musician luliano has debuted “Who Knows,” a single that draws on classical bossa nova just as much as alternative pop and indietronica. Ambling vocals conjure a Thom Yorke with suave complexity. What begins as a lighthearted stroll down the neck of a guitar descends into a dissonant soundscape of locomotive percussion and scatterbrained falsetto. The track is an engrossing marriage between the familiar and experimental.
