Writers and various music industry professionals often describe music that is some combination of downtempo, mellow, sensual, R&B or electronica-inspired, and amorphously formed as “vibe-y.” Even when people say they like vibe-y music, there is a pejorative undercurrent—as if to say, “I like it even though it’s vibe-y.” While the term conjures a particular set of sounds, it’s a lazy descriptor that steamrolls a lot of subtlety and pigeonholes much great music and song-craft (if, perhaps, not always imminently marketable song craft).

Ireland-based duo UNKNWN make what could be described as vibe-y music, but, if single “BBY” is any indicator, they know how to push pure feeling with interesting structure and texture, avoiding oversimplification in description. Much of this success is due to producer Chris Hanna, whose morphing arrangement clicks, clatters, and boils to a sweltering climax beneath vocalist Gemma Dunleavy’s light vocal. The accompanying video is a suitably surreal five minutes featuring a solo performance from Dunleavy accented by a variety of digital effects that hypnotically up the abstraction.
