Tinashe makes a ‘Bet’ with Dev Hynes

Tinashe-Aquarius-2014-1500x1500

We’re loving everything we’ve heard of Tinashe‘s forthcoming album, Aquarius and that love continues with the drop of another track, Bet. Bet features Dev Hynes but not as you’ve heard him before. Hynes usually revels in throwback RnB numbers a la Solange‘s Losing You, but here he closely follows Tinashe‘s aesthetic and turns out a bass-heavy, contemporary tune. Tinashe sounds brilliant as per usual, winding her way through slightly more unconventional melodies than she’s used to- think more Kelela than Jhene Aiko. It’s an interesting cut that has us hyped to hear what the rest of the album has in store. Bring on 7 October.

Update: Fuck the song, hear the whole album here.
