One of the online underground’s best-kept secrets, 18+ have garnered acclaim with a trilogy of mixtapes, leading to commissions by Prada and the Venice Biennale. Blending lyrical themes of sexual ambiguity, anonymity, voyeurism and fantasy in the digital era with a minimal, yet catchy electronic hip-hop-meets-R&B aesthetic, their intrigue is deepened by how little is known about this US boy-girl duo.
As 18+ prepare to emerge from the recesses of the internet, their first commercial release drops on Houndstooth.
‘Crow’ (“a bass-heavy, finger-click-laden banger” – Tiny Mix Tapes), backed with ‘Horn’ (“haunting” – Dummy), is the first 7” on the label and is pressed to white, dinked vinyl in a strictly limited run of 300 copies worldwide.
Released on 4th August.
