Before we begin, get your headphones out. You wanna hear this one up close and personal.
Australian producer Charles Murdoch's new single "Straws" is absolutely stunning track, and I'm so glad that I get to share it with you.
"Straws" opens with an ambient organ soundscape, interspersed with whispers and a beat that infuses ever so slowly throughout the introductory minute. As the beat drops and the full atmosphere takes shape, it's like entering a cavernous and endless plain of sounds, tones, and both electronic and organic layers. Despite feeling so musically dense, each layer gives off such a delicate, intricate feel. The track continues to change and build as it progresses, pulling you along through the musical plains at a cool, comfortable pace.
The track is accompanied by a beautiful video, shot in Germany. It follows the story of a sexually-repressed skinhead named Pete, and is reportedly one of a three-part series.
