Press play on this track and close your eyes. Where are you? On a beach, watching the sun sink into the rising and falling tides, hopefully with a beverage in your hand.
Suddenly, Beshken slides in a few subtle percussive accents and Gus Dapperton sits down next to you and starts singing. His smooth voice coaxes you into a musical trance, then disappears in favor of soft chords, calls of seabirds and a simple guitar melody. You still with me?
The beauty of this minimal track lies in its ability to successfully create a sense of space. It is consistent with the chill sound we’ve come to associate with Beshken while simultaneously showcasing Dapperton’s lyricism. If you’re in need of a mental vacation, give this track a listen and let it transport you to a more tranquil domain.
