Indie-Electronic duo Bassline Drift offer up their debut album 'Proximity,' out now on Gravitas Music. Producer-vocalist pair Keli Marks and Rachel 'Sink' Lindsay prove to be a potently powerful combination, blending hypnotic vocal dexterity and bass-filled electronic elements that captivate the listener from the onset. Stylistically, the songs draw from worldly and imaginative influence, with both upbeat and slower treasures contained within. The follow up to last year’s 'Ten Moons' EP, this new full length LP consists of seven original tracks and two remixes from producers Nanda & Kermode, and is available on all digital retailers.

Opening with the sensual 'Nature,' the listener is transported to a seductive fantasy realm by the provocative mixture of Marks' emotive melodies and Lindsay's sultry voice. Next, the title track combines minimal beats with somber verses to produce a stimulating, dynamic ballad. Alluding to struggles of the soul, slower tracks like 'Your Heart is Mine' and 'I Don’t Know How To Be In Love' are mysterious and haunting hymns of heartache laid upon delicate rhythms. Effortlessly, ‘Scoundrel’ snaps the listener back to their senses. A perfect pick-me-up, the tune is an entrancing fusion of R&B, blues, and bass filled to the brim with attitude. Dhumavati comes next; a hybrid of exquisite, middle eastern vocals and heavy bass sounds, the track is an elevation of intensity compared to the rest of 'Proximity.' Easily the happiest piece on the album, 'Our Own Home' features varied acoustic instrumentation, injecting the song with cheerful, feel-good vibes. Rounding out the LP, Kermode slows things down with a sexy melodic dubstep twist on 'Proximity,' followed closely by Nanda’s psychedelic, experimental take on 'Nature.'

Track Name: Nature
I don't want to go away
Take me to the place
We grew up in nature

Feel the flowers on my feet
Crush them underneath
We grew up in nature

Your hands are open
Your law's been broken

I don't want to go away
Take me to the place
We grew up in nature

Spring awakens in the deep
Havoc it will wreak
On souls it may capture

Soon, in smoke tomorrow reigns
Wrapping 'round in chains
Souls it enraptured

Your hands are open
Your law's been broken

Your worth is shaken
What's pure was taken

I don't want to go away
Take me to the place
We grew up in nature
Track Name: Proximity
It's getting late
Time to go
With a hand on her, buried in his chest
Take a dose

Just breathe it in
All those fumes
There is nothing to gain, voluntary pain
In the room

Pick one or the other
No choice in the matter
He went with the latter

Come back to me
You'll never get enough of me

Let's raise the stakes
All eyes on them
Cause it's one thing to blush but he gave her that rush
With his hands

Just take that curse
Make it spin
Carving prisons and locks, find that forever love
Just not with him

But he keeps running back to me

Running, running back to me
Coming, coming back for me
Taking, taking love from me
Til there's nothing left of us
Track Name: Your Heart Is Mine
Should I slip and fall
It'll be my fault

We've carried lies all our lives
Why make it stop

I wish you'd look me in the eye
So you can see that

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I trust you, I trust you, I trust you, I trust you

You can see that

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
But I don't want to

Your heart is mine
We're out of time
Track Name: Scoundrel
Don't you come around here
There ain't no room
Just pack your bags
I win, you lose

Don't you come around here
You scoundrel Jack
You broke my heart
I'll break your back

Scuff up your boots
Suck on your chew
Give me some slack
Dip your hat like that

Oh, you know your way around a dame
Oh, you know that shame

Don't you talk about me
That shit ain't true
Bygones can't be
Because of you

Rev up your truck
Don't push your luck
Biding my time
I got boys in line

Don't waste my time
Better get in line

It's not my fault
So why'd I catch ya drunk enough and chasing tail
Just one more chance darling
Back out the door you dirty dog this ship has sailed
I'll be better
I've heard that one too many times to take the bait
Please believe me
You'll never fix us

Oh, you know your way around a dame
Oh, you know that shame
Track Name: Dhumavati
Hear the crows out when I lay me down to sleep
Hear the crows out when I lay me down to sleep

Her eyes know no bounds
Her eyes know no bounds

Formless, nameless

Pray to God
Pray to one love, one love

Your voice

Her eyes know no bounds
Her eyes know no bounds

Formless, nameless

Your voice
Track Name: Our Own Home
Come with me
Let's run away
Take this hand
Let's go away

I know you're scared
But it's not very far
If you follow your heart

Take this hand
Let's chase down the sun
Take this hand
Let's run

Take this hand
Let's go
Take this hand
Let's build a home

Our own home
Track Name: I Don't Know How To Be In Love
Wrapped up in a shirt that isn't mine
Arms cold
Take me home

Your smile reaches everything
But your eyes
I must go from the moonlight

I don't know how to be in love

If all that you want is right here
Show me
I'm not scared

Can't promise every little thing
Will be all right
Just fold your hands over mine

I don't know how to be in love

Don't let me walk away this time
Don't let me say goodbye
Cause
I don't know how to be in love
