Reemerging from the shadows to follow up his official remix duties for Dragonette, Barcelona’s David Borras, better known as Heren, teams up alongside hometown producer Joan Reyes and Sydney songstress Amba Shepherd for a new release on Reyes’ Beyond Sounds label.

Though lacking some of the epic production values of their more esteemed peers, their somewhat meticulous approach and Shepherd’s clever lyrics make for a mark of musical maturity from the Spanish hopefuls.
