The Lush And Vast Soundscapes Of Astrocene
A fresh release from Astrocene brings a bright indie-pop flavor crossed with ambient dream and synthwave to create a beautiful atmosphere with musical swells and sways.
The Emergence album is packed with gorgeous layered textures using synths, keys, guitars, pads, and smooth vocals all mending together and building worlds for you to step into for moments at a time.
These songs swim around you and keep you afloat at all times hovering just above the ground and feeling every note flow through your hair and touch your skin.
The record is colorful and alive as it breathes and washes you away with the soundscape of each new track.
There is this very positive vibe coming from this record that feels good to listen to and the album as a whole is quite brilliant in a way.
Guitars pluck and twang in the distance like waves crashing on the shore and vocals are warm and welcoming.
Keys and synths keep the sunset feeling strong and each track has a little something different to bring to the table but not without losing the staple sound that Astrocene is grounded to.
This is like a spaced out summer album with some outstanding songwriting and a refreshing and vibrant set of percussion sections, and a great sheen that coats all the songs.
Astrocene has kept things within the realm of pop but has built this album without many boundaries and with a ton of heart that comes through strongly.
Emergence is a cinematic and vast record with all the bells and whistles you'd want from a record that crosses so many wonderful styles of pop music in one.
Jump into this record and take a swim with Astrocene.
