I'm pretty certain that anything dripping with gooey reverb these days will catch my loving ear. Given space in the chambers of echo and reverberation the tracks from Universal Studios Florida
(USF) new release Ocean Sunbirds
glow in the softly setting sun over the sea, boats rolling in the most distant plane burning up against vibrant blue-blocked orange and yellow clouds. The rhythym and keys, tripping and glitching in places, pointy synths run quick lines all the while a driving beat holds the swelling arpegiating drones in place.
This Seattle duo requires high volume or headphones and comes highly recomended for summer jamming purposes which, of course, leads this record to being H+H approved. Originally a bedroom project, the two were coaxed out of their homes and into my garage for their first show earlier this year. Receiving much local love, worldwide bloggage, and selling out of the first self titled EP from Little Fury Things shortly after that.
In this new track from USF's new album, Sun Glyphed Comanche Kissed, reminiscent of a slow motion flight over seas and jungles, you can hear the ocean slapping, gurlging, and surging underneath. Sparkling overtones and a light rhythym drops dropping close to the 2 minute mark, this is one of favorites from the record. Stream it out!
The new album, Ocean Sunbirds
, is available on CD from Little Fury Things
