Hickory is a concept music duo, flaring out their experimental prowess and electronic sonics to materialize perspectives out of thin air. In their sophomore album, Batten Down the Hatches, they explore existentialism through the lenses of man, mundanity, and madness, among others. Taken from this collection is the track, All The Time; a surreal wave with Hickory ‘s avant garde treasures and smooth vocal peaks. The duo debuted in early 2020 with their album, Young. And an evident development of technique and sophistication of style comes through in this new album. Listen Now!

The track opens with soft lines of synths, their lilting tones underlined by pulsing beats and hyperactive basslines. Slates of smooth baritones glide through the sonic ethereum, its hypnotic drawl luring us into a spiral of disjointed electronica. The synchrony of awry tangents with melody is manufactured with well-timed accuracy, scale and texture coordination. Synching riffs pull the canvas in with its vibrancy and resonance. Its shimmering floors form the perfect take off point for the smooth falsettos and evocative violins in the climax.

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
