South London partnership 11 is born from a nomadic lifestyle.
Meeting in the capital, the duo - James Lamb and Richard Craker - are deeply immersed in music, taking up projects around the world.
But 11 is the line that binds them. The project has a spartan sense of electronic soul, a pensive songwriting quality that is both austere and revealing.
New single 'What You Deserve' is a case in point. The stuttering beats recall Burial, while the slinky guitar line wouldn't be out of place on the debut album from The xx.
There's a murky, twilight feel with the songwriting, allowing 11 to express something personal. They comment:
“‘What You Deserve’ was written at home in my London flat in late 2018. I wanted to convey, through lyrics of the song, feelings of reflecting on a past relationship in which you couldn’t meet your partners expectations.”
