Vancouver-based producer Cyril Hahn just released what might be his strongest, most seamlessly crafted track to date. The effervescent beats and sliced vocal loop, “Leave my heart wide open” lend a playful but yearning quality to the production, keeping the listener blissfully afloat in the chill soundscape.
This latest track from indie/synth-pop group Mansions On The Moon is a bit of a departure from their previous work. The first thought that came to mind when I attempted to describe it is “Passion Pit goes a little EDM,” but I’m not sure that’s an entirely accurate or fair description. With “Somewhere Else Tonight,” they have definitely managed to straddle the line between indiepop and EDM in a way that’s infectious and intriguing, but without being accessible or mainstream enough to break into top 40 territory.
If you’re looking for a fun, summery song that’s a little different from what you might hear on the radio, or if you’re just craving a little bit of ear candy, this one is definitely worth checking out.
