about

‘Give + Take’, Bassline Drift’s anticipated second full-length album, takes the listener through a euphonic narrative guided by exotically sensual subwoofer rhythms. Rachel “Sink” Lindsay’s hauntingly sultry vocals fuse perfectly with the diversity of other world-music elements, conveyed by producer Keli Marks throughout the 9 track composition. While effortlessly blending a unique array of genre-influences, the duo demonstrates focus on an overall narration; a wide range of fans will feel right at home with the musical synthesis of this LP released via Gravitas Recordings.

Opening on a warm, soft note, the title track showcases classical depth prior to a switch toward meticulous glitchiness via its energy-ramping bass drop. ‘Engine’ flaunts pop-music sensibilities peppered with a unique left-field twist, remaining true to Bassline Drift’s overall “world bass” sound. The vibe takes a colorful turn with ‘The Fortune Teller’; without diverging from the album’s storyline, the track readily floats into electro-gypsy territory. ‘Radha Ramana’ ft. Kirtaniyas continues the exotic vibe, channeling deep, soul shaking bass before ‘Forever Young’ wraps up the release on a somber note.

Track Name: Give + Take
Breathe
Let me steal a moment of your time darling
Won’t hurt
You’re safe in my bed tonight

I know that it’s my mistake
Drowning til my lungs break
Get on your knees
Say please

Now it starts to break
Break away over me
(Break me, take me)

Stay
Let me take just one night of your love darling
Hold me
Bring my heart into you

I know that it’s my mistake
Drowning til my lungs break
Get on your knees
Say please

Now it starts to break
Break away over me
(Break me, take me)
Track Name: Engine
These boys they think that I'm easy
Like they don't gotta try hard to please me
Like I'm not out of their league already
This goddess got the body

Tick tock don't got all day
Male privilege come my way

That's right get down to the engine
Down with the friction

Don't try to be strategic
Head down want you to lick
Inconsiderate? I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit

That's right get down to the engine
Down with the friction

Don't make me wait
(What I came here for)
You give I take
(What we bargained for)

That's right get down to the engine
Down with the friction

Next time I won't be so nice
Make you sing for supper
Prove it's your only true vice
That's my kind of lover

Straight shooter, smooth talker
Come closer, wanna show ya

That's right get down to the engine
Down with the friction

Don't make me wait
(What I came here for)
You give I take
(What we bargained for)
Track Name: Intersect
Slide on over
Wanna see you up close
Run for cover
Cause I love you the most

Come closer
Don’t be a stranger

All kinds of people
Walking the line
Two points crossing
Intertwined

He don’t know
He don’t know I’m waiting
He don’t know what’s next

Here comes the collision
No time for decisions
Good things come to those who crash

Hey there honey
You keep coming around
What’s your hurry
Taste a sweet duet
We should slow down

Life keeps on going
No turning back
Two words whispered
On my neck

He don’t know
He don’t know I’m wanting
He don’t know what’s next

Here comes the collision
No time for decisions
Good things come to those who crash

Come closer
Don’t be a stranger
Track Name: Wolves
You don't know a thing about me
Won't hear a word I say
Chivalry is dead with all these wolves after me

Don't let the beast go hungry
Don't answer to their call
Feeding off the fallen
Hoping for a miracle

Moon was in it for the long haul
God's sun preaching to the people
Daughters screaming out freedom

Stand up
Stand up with me

Middle of the night you're hunting
Starving cause you're never full
Hunger on your breath is burning
Animal

Moon was in it for the long haul
God's sun preaching to the people
Daughters screaming out freedom

Stand up
Stand up with me

Wash the blood from your bed
Hear the truth in what she said
Stand up
Stand up

Wash the blood from your hair
Quench the fever
Stand up
Stand up with me
Track Name: The Fortune Teller
See your future in my eyes
My power reaches far and high
For a penny you will see
All the glories you could reap

Unraveling your fascinations
I could make your dreams come true
But it’ll cost you

Hold your horses let me see
The pretty promise before me
Now I’ve told you once before
You’ll have to pay if you want more

I can see what’s coming and I promise to tell
Whisper all your secrets in the wishing well
Track Name: Lovers' Apocalypse
If the world is gonna shift
At least I’m safe inside your arms
With silent whispers on my lips
A haven built in human form

Together but we’re still alone
Forever restless in our souls
Hypocrites, fingertips
Our own lovers’ apocalypse
No one can say that we’re alone

And if the world takes you away
Left in the dust our memories
Don’t cry my love don’t be afraid
You’ll find me in the empty space

Together but we’re still alone
Forever restless in our souls
Hypocrites, fingertips
Our own lovers’ apocalypse
No one can say that we’re alone

Silence is fading
Two lovers embracing
Our hearts are breaking
I won’t see you again
Track Name: Radha Ramana (Ft. Kirtaniyas)
Govinda Jaya Jaya
Gopala Jaya Jaya
Radha Ramana Hari
Govinda Jaya Jaya

Govinda Govinda Govinda
Govinda Govinda Jaya
Track Name: Forever Young
I don’t want to leave you out in the cold
Out here alone
I still see your footsteps
Out in the snow
So many years ago

Safe, I want you safe
Strange how we hide our fears away
Our honesty

Love is forever young
And we grow
Love is forever young
And we grow old

I don’t want to leave you out in the cold
Out here alone
