Following 2018's fractal "Kudu", the similarly vivid "Pink Dolphins" takes a familiar approach to jazz. Nazary and branch make music that refuses to root itself in one spot, lurching semi-consciously from hip-hop and dance music into funk, psych rock, prog and jazz.
This time around the duo are assisted by Jeff Parker, who was a fan of Anteloper's kitchen sink sound and felt as if he could tweak them into the next tier. Inspired by Miles Davis's "Live Evil", Parker plays a Teo Macero role on "Pink Dolphins", reigning in branch and Nazary's influences but allowing the duo to breathe. branch is influenced by Sun Ra, J Dilla and Mouse on Mars, while Nazary wants his drums to sound like "Confield"-era Autechre.
