Premiere: As winter sets in, let PINES warm you up with their new single, Calling You
The Adelaide duo are making some very lush electronica right now.
Last time we posted about Adelaide duo PINES, it was regarding their single Fate - at the time likening them very much to the likes of ODESZA, old-school Flume and Brisbane's cln. And with their latest single, Calling You, the comparisons still remain, but its clear the twosome are beginning to forge their own path. Following recent shows with the likes of Touch Sensitive and Paces, its fairly safe to say the rest of the country are also starting to sit up and take notice. Calling You comes at a time when the Australian mornings are getting colder, and the rains more frequent, and will very quickly pull you out of the gloomy onset of winter with shimmering synths, uplifting vocal chops and organic percussion. Take it all in below, after reading a few words on the track from the duo themselves:
"Calling You started off as an idea to do something with a little more light and shade, leveraging off a fairly relaxed verse to create a sense of euphoria in the chorus. We worked a lot on combining a tight drum and bass groove in the verse with some shimmery, floating sorts of textures to create contrast. As with most of our tracks we were also really keen to find a vocal that added some beauty, depth and emotion. We really felt that the we managed to achieve that in the end with the tones and vocal slices that we decided on."
