Sultan + Shepard – ‘Almost Home‘ – Though it’s already been eight years since Sultan + Shepard graced Nadia Aliwith one hell of a remix of ‘Love Story,’ the 2009 team-up finally gets its follow-up. Today, the electronic music stars and the Pakistani-American singer and songwriter pick up where they left off by joining forces for ‘Almost Home.’ The single is released on Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music and complemented by additional vocals from Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter IRO.
With Nadia Ali‘s voice as a calming presence amidst the track’s country-brushed vibe, ‘Almost Home‘ radiates big room, pop-savvy reassurance with a mid-track wake-up call. The guitars hold a steady line before surging into its bouncy, zingy climax and IRO‘s vocals offer a second round of sturdy comfort, assisting in the transition of audiences linking arms and then jumping up together. It’s festival heat shot through with a cool breeze.
