Indie pop duo Wotts, based in Canada, have released "blue," the second tantalizing taste of their upcoming EP "Garden." The shimmering new single casts listeners under an ethereal spell, transporting them to an atmospheric dreamscape.
"blue" begins with just gentle synth notes that twinkle like sunlight dancing on dewy blades of new grass. Soon, layered atop are sublime orchestral swells, beckoning listeners into Wotts' weightless sound world. The yearning, floating vocals carry listeners further into a hazy reverie, filled with twinkling sounds like gold glittering in blue skies.
The song evokes the arrival of spring, with its feelings of lightness and freedom, as the last remnants of winter slip away on a fresh breeze. Surprising guitar notes waft through the ether, reminiscent of clouds drifting lazily across an endless blue expanse. Even the vocals float dreamily, buoyed along by the song's divine musical backing.
Indeed, the title "blue" perfectly captures the visual aesthetic and emotive spirit of the track. The song paints imagery of wide skies filled with fluffy clouds, a vastness that springtime brings with its feelings of new beginnings and possibilities.
Though only a few minutes in length, the song transports listeners to another world entirely through its wistful harmonies, progressive dynamics, and atmospheric sound design. Wotts demonstrate a gift for crafting poetic pop songs that conjure vivid visuals and evoke emotions. And though the dreamy vocals carry notes of longing, there is an inherent joy and levity for beginnings anew - much like spring itself.
While just a brief taste, "blue" whets listeners' appetites for more of Wotts' aesthetic pop. Those who close their eyes while listening may find themselves transported to springtime, walking garden paths awash in new growth and life, blue skies stretching endlessly above. And if the single is any indication, the "Garden" EP will invite listeners into a rich sonic landscape that stimulates sight, sound, and feeling, all while joyfully heralding spring's arrival after a long winter.
