They say good things come in pairs, and for electronic artist Double Triangle, that prophecy rings doubly true. The enigmatic producer just dropped a surprise two-song release titled 'Haberdashery / Brenda,' offering listeners an immersive listening experience through two thoughtfully crafted tracks.
Let's dive into 'Haberdashery' first. As the intro swells open like curtains on a new world, you can feel yourself slip away into a softly lit magic shop. Sparkling chimes and shimmering pads take you beyond the mundane, floating us amongst floating rows of curiosities and curios. There's a new-world enchantment to the melodies that wraps around the soul like a fine cozy sweater.
Like browsing a haberdashery, your attention is piqued but never rushed. Samples flit by mysteriously, snippets of conversation or shop noises, beckoning further exploration. By the halfway point, the atmosphere had fully enveloped the senses. The textures glitter, busy patches weave intricate patterns, yet the calm is never broken.
Our expedition now continues with "Brenda," a tribute to the artist’s grandmother. Right away we are struck by the track's relaxed yet poignant melodics. Ethereal synths carry haunting vocal snippets across atmospheric swells, imbuing the piece with a tinge of wistful longing. The rhythmic framework provides a grounding presence amidst gorgeous synth washes. It's supremely mellow - the perfect accompaniment to gazing out a window on a rainy day, lost in memories both beautiful and bittersweet.
It's a potent emotional feeling that brings to mind feelings of remembrance, change, and impermanence. Where "Haberdashery" transports the mind, "Brenda" gently lifts the soul. It's a moving piece of introspective electronic pop that leaves a lasting emotional resonance.
This is the kind of journey best experienced from start to finish without interruption. Spend some unbothered minutes slipping in and out of these generous soundscapes, soaking in their tranquil headspaces. Double Triangle has made two precise productions that feel perfectly calibrated for this exact moment of anxious modernity - a respite without escape, presence without pressure. His music restores harmony where there is often only noise.
With this double release, Double Triangle displays meticulous arrangements, exotic textures, and a profound ability to set a pensive and impactful mood. As always, our expedition with Double Triangle has been one of wonder, introspection, and joyful discovery.
