After dropping his debut single “Heading Home” to great acclaim at the beginning of the year, Gryffin is back with a new release. Teaming up with British singer Bipolar Sunshine, the rising producer delivers a solid indie-dance flavored single titled “Whole Heart” that sees his sound continuing to mature.
“Whole Heart” opens with a quiet introduction, featuring dreamy chords and Bipolar Sunshine’s gentle singing. Minimal percussion soon joins the mix alongside the strums of an acoustic guitar, leading into soaring drops with trap style rhythms and stuttered synth chords. The production keeps its focus narrow to zero in on the songwriting, making the dance segues all the more satisfying when they appear.
Gryffin’s newest work is a delight to listen to, expanding on the sound he developed on his first single while taking its summery appeal to the next level, aided by Bipolar Sunshine’s pristine vocal delivery.
