Listen: CONCLΔVE – “Crystal Skies”

12 Apr

Conclave2

Back to the land of the thousand islands we head today, to be reunited once more with the 23 year old beatsmith, Conclave. We haven’t learnt any more about him since we featured the dark and dextrous “Melted” back in February, but he has subsequently released a couple of new tracks online.

“Ocean Star” has that distressed feel, like stone washed electronica with Lana Del Rey vocals, while his latest, “Crystal Skies” (which you can stream below) continues the theme. There is no LDR styling here though, but distant and echoey vocals calling out from afar, trying to reach for the deep piano sounds and glitchy, sci-fi electronics.

Moving within shadows, the vocals evoke just the faintest feeling of Dev Hynes’ Blood Orange persona with an almost imperceptible underground seediness lingering in the darkness. It is sedate, haunting and atmospheric, music to soundtrack the oncoming dusk as day begins to fade into night.

Both “Ocean Star” and “Crystal Skies” will feature alongside “Melted” and another, yet to be released track, “Siren”, on Conclave’s forthcoming Night Oasis EP.
