PREMIERE: Isla Den - Virtual Copy ii
Toronto Canada duo Isla Den, comprised of Ellie Manning and Michael Reale have given us the pleasure of premiering 'Virtual Copy ii', their second single from their forthcoming debut EP Water Signs, due out on April 4.
'Virtual Copy ii' is a vocoder lovers' dream. Weightless pads and vaporous vocals are at the forefront of the tracks' blissful progression. These dreamy, contemplative vocals flow freely around an angelic and spacious soundscape before becoming glitched within the beat's breakdown. The rhythmic beat bounds the phantasmagoric production into an approachable and warm ensemble. Accompanying the single is a lush lyric visualiser, set in a millennial retro vibe.
Overall 'Virtual Copy ii' is a lovely track that'll take all your life's stress away. After listening to Isla Den they are rapidly becoming one of my favourites for new age chilled electro pop, and I can guarantee that they will be yours too.
