Premiere: Laurel Laxxes Blesses Us With Deeply Brooding Electronic Gem, ‘Polar Eyes’

Laurel Laxxes is taking a step outside of what is deemed “popular electronic music”, and gifting us with a dark and somewhat introverted release.

It becomes very easy to follow the crowd in this current musical climate, but this indie producer is making a move for the lead position. ‘Polar Eyes’ is a tune that reflects Laxxes’ emotional outlook and a period of transition in his life.

I was bored to death of hearing tropical bangers and wanted to write a moodier, more reverb-soaked tune that reflected where I was mentally. The juxtaposition of the faster paced beat against the brooding guitars and synth patches is the end result of the uncertainty and emotional fluctuation I was feeling while writing alone in my studio. I wanted to create something that was both distant and intrusive at the same time. – Laurel Laxxes

In comes Byron Bay songstress Angie Hudson to add a whole other dimension to the already layered track with her stunning voice.

She picked up a moody, pensive vibe from the track and sent me her ideas for the melodies. The lyrics are about viewing a deteriorating relationship between two people from the outside, but also being directly affected by what happens in it at the same time. Being both involved but removed can create a confusing, ethereal feeling which we tried to capture in the performance of the vocals – Laurel Laxxes

Angie and I decided to name to the song ‘Polar Eyes’ because the song is about viewing a relationship between two people that you care about from the outside. Seeing the contradicting ways they act towards each other and witnessing the positive and negative habits of their behaviour and actions. – Laurel Laxxes

As the cruisey melody progresses, a cosmic evolution of quirky sounds simmers deep within the background of both verses and transitions. Funnily enough, they are sounds sampled from Hudson’s room.

Flapo Brightens Thutmose’ ‘Wuwu’ With A Distinctly Pacific Sound

Flapo brightens Thutmose’ recent hit, ‘Wuwu‘ with a distinctly Pacific sound. The Columbian producer channels his inner vacation, with his take on Brooklyn rappers hit. The relaxed yet bassy tune sports some similarities in sound to Hawaiian native graves Hilo EP. From what has been previously expressed, the EP was a direct reflection and influence of Hawaiian sound. Taking direct influence from graves or not, Flapo does justice to the track, bringing a new sense of serenity and openness to the track through his coy manipulation of existing vocals and excellent sound design.

The Columbian has been no stranger to success either with several Hype Machine placements, so you can almost certainly expect to see the tranquil remix of ‘Wuwu’ spreading its way across your favorite streaming sites and platforms.
