It's not often that Bristol label Pollen pops up with a release, preferring instead to bide its time with choice offerings when the time is just right. As such, the Portrait release comes in a rose-tinted haze of contemporary garage flex, steeped in melody and melancholy, with crisp, snappy beats. "Because" weaves around piano chords and a light touch of boogie which adds weight to the floaty leanings of the track. "All Me" takes a more outre route, with a slower tempo that allows the space required for a slippery beat like this one. There's a soulful funk at work here that gets the feet tapping, even when the rest of the track positively encourages wistful daydreaming.
