Oscillating between enchanting pop and jazz with a hip-hop vibe, Uncle Wellington creates a universe in which hybrid drums are seductively intertwining with melancholic folktronica. Between acoustic beauty and analogue experiment. Between raw poetry and sweet delusion.

The code is the first single of the coming album The faster I waltz, the better I jive (october 12). The song illustrates how one can patiently wait for something better, between realism and naivety. The first line echoes a famous Leonard Cohen line. It found its way to the song during a gig in the Yellow Door in Montreal, where the Canadian grandmaster himself played one of his first gigs. And this only weeks before his death.

Uncle Wellington amazed us with this beautiful voice and wonderful performance. After the first second of the song, you will feel the words of the song deep in your soul, like magic.
