South-Indian singer M. D. Pallavi, one of the most prominent protagonists of Bangalore's traditional music scene, has collaborated with Andi Otto (aka Springintgut) in various theater productions; the duo now present their first track together, "Bangalore Whispers" (preceding more to collaboration in 2016). Otto's composition for "Bangalore Whispers" creates the spine for Pallavi's virtuoso performance of carnatic (traditional South-Indian) syllables. The track pulses at 95 BPM with an organic cluster of piano, cello, and psalterium strings, over which the vocals erupt in a mesmerizing vocal solo in the middle of the track. The euphoric B-side, "6-6-6-5," was made exclusively for this 7".
