Ferris Wheel Americana

Surfaces’ “So Far Away” is a classic and almost ballad-like electro-pop anthem about beachside romance, making for a real good time.

The beachside has so many prompts to people – sunsets, wine, and ocean, social scenes left, right, and centre, and the always presents thriving romance. Surfaces make a pop ballad romance scene come to life against the backdrop of American beach sounds – the feeling of Americana is melting off this track like an ice cream cone on a carnival pier.

Carnivals in slow motion, popcorns in a montage, and the inevitability of a first kiss shine and flicker in the aesthetic of this track.

Small Space, Big Theme

A song created in lockdown culture makes for the ultimate amalgamation of a stress I lived through every day — nothings happening and it’s all going downhill.

So there was a huge call for good mental health in the time of lockdown — a somewhat need for everyone to just kinda relax and breathe and just know things are gonna be OK and yet, as all humans do, we panicked and of course for all the right reasons…bad things were happening.

“More Than This” takes that exact moment, the “nothing is happening and it all is kinda terrible” moment, and evolves it just a few steps into the future, into the moment of, ” I think it’s gonna be OK” and further into the ” just hold on baby” mindset. It succeeds in making you feel like there is a light.

A breath of fresh air amidst the chaos of quarantine-themed content in music. Aimés’ “More Than This” is an uplifting, folky pop song that guarantees a smile.

Indulging in The Trip

A bopping, funky, and relatable human narrative leads to a grooving sound.

Max Pope delivers a narrative that is not only relatable but also so easy to listen to. You almost don’t even realize how much you are taking in when listening to “Automatic” because it’s so easygoing. You are, ultimately. on automatic when listening. “Automatic” is an entertainingly constructed sound that isn’t just easy, but also hyper-intelligent in its indulgence.

A drum track that is satisfying to the end, a smooth jazzy guitar layered with funk keeps it all going at a rhythmic pace. It takes you for a ride, and its a pretty good one!

Captain’s Log Day 36547

I can’t help but feel floaty, floaty in an astronomical sense, floaty in an emotional sense, and floaty in a timely sense.

This song does something to my understanding of time…it warps it! Ironically, for a song all about the next day, getting to the next day and pushing through, or even possibly not at all — it gets my idea of time all loopy.

The song is spacey like the track was put through a teleporter and the resulting noise of the atomizing and stretched composition was recorded, sampled, and overlayed. If put into a more understandable (but entertainingly similar in pretense) way: I feel like this was the exact sound that went through Major Tom’s head as they warped into the vastness of space. It has a hanging uncertainty to it — a beautifully unsettling joy and yet underplayed sadness that I haven’t heard in a Chet Faker song for a while.

I hope to hear more of this spacey, warped sound from them as I’m sure Major Tom is still waiting for the transmission back from Tomorrow.
