Bhuman will never not be outstanding. A year following their spacey debut LP, Bmovie, the queer alt-pop duo arrive with a rhythmic-pop piece called “Claimed.” In reliable fashion, they zip into a musicality that slithers and slides, and it’s not so easily defined.
“I tried so hard to trust / For everyone but us,” they sing. The melody, haunting and brittle, accentues the production’s strangely off-kilter radiation. Various percussive elements boil like a witch’s cauldron, watery and emitting sharp odors. It’s spellbinding.
