Crisp rhythms and multicoloured sound-design create a blissfully summer-ready vibe as this stylishly genre-fusing new single from Blake Rogers steps out.
Featuring breathy, gentle yet doubled vocals, Essence proves intimate and all at once chaotic and calm as its plethora of layers rain down. At the same time, the clear tone and identity of the voice offers a nostalgic touch of performance and introduces Blake’s work in a likable way.
Leading with a plethora of ingredients from the organic guitars to the retro production choices, Essence is a uniquely progressive single that meanders through its post-five-minute lifespan with a sort of carefree sense of busyness and joyful escapism alike.
Having said that, there are a few clearly recognisable riffs, moments and lines, that help keep threads alive for a memorable release. In short, Essence promises a strong balance between effective building blocks and absolute creative freedom.
