This track is so pretty and has a melancholy vocal that just melts your heart. Love the old school synth lead sound on this track as well. All in all this track floats across a still ocean and lands in a sweet spot of pop and dance. Klangkarussell, which translates to “Sound Carousel”, is Austria duo Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held.
This is the latest single from the duo Gravity Circus (Japanese Jimmy “Onibi” Nagaura Yabiko and Dutch German Ken “Toro” Luske). The track opens with up with a melancholy chord progression on acoustic guitar and Jimmy’s scratchy voice that is perfectly matched to the overall vibe. The track progresses to the chorus which is a blend of indie pop and electronica with it’s electronic textures that are tastefully placed. The melody of the chorus is beautiful as well as the ambience.
The song tells a tale of memories past that still haunt but with a yearning to let it be and to move forward.
There is something about this track that immediately called back to smoke filled dance rooms in the summer. Has a Underworld esque vibe to the track and a bit of that UK energy rave sound. Kinda like a finding a missing Trainspotting soundtrack tune. Has that soaring horn lead that just jumps out and is coupled with a vocal sample in the distance. Jackton is music producer who currently resided in Scandinavia.
