New Tracks: Quadron – “Sea Salt” & “Better Off” ft. Kendrick Lamar


The last few days have seen a couple new tracks from Quadron. The first, “Better Off,” features Kendrick Lamar and shares an underwater synth sound and echoey vocal mood similar to that found on the duo’s debut album. The slower “Sea Salt” dropped today holding jazzy hints along with an old soul flair to the chorus.

Hear “Sea Salt” on Okayplayer.

Avalanche is out June 4.
