A contemplative yet characteristically playful piece, ‘Years Ago’ is a shining example of ASIWYFA’s inimitable grasp of creative composition and call-and-response dynamics. Shuffling, laid back drums drift underneath wandering, effortless melodies as the overdrive slowly but surely sneaks up on us, bursting in a gleeful cascade of duelling guitars and spiralling cymbals. ‘Years Ago’ is ASIWYFA in their jarring yet joyous element; a musical melting pot of cultural influences and diverse inspirations.

“Where Years Ago retains some of the urgency that is across Megafauna, for me it also presents another colour of the record – A kind of sensitivity. Underpinned by a nod to the old hip hop loops that we all grew up on.”

And So I Watch You From Afar play Pelagic Fest in Maastricht, NL on 24-25 August, 2024.
