Home-made production vibes meet with a raw fusion of dreamy shoegaze and light trap for this hypnotic and emotional new single from Maury.
Offering multiple layers of reverb-soaked vocals, each raining down with a certain whispered delicacy and subtly passionate performance alike, Summer runs through its initial minute-thirty with a select few loops of melody and vocal concept. Then things switch gears, space comes into play, a few cinematic details and fragments of spoken word to really set the scene.
The intention is story-telling, and the looping nature of the soundscape with its multi-layered warmth makes you really lose yourself to the potential topic in a strangely compelling way.
The entire latter half of the track is in fact way less heavy lyrically – almost like an artistic break, allowing the story to trail off, the subject to leave you wondering.
In any case, there are threads of character to the musical progression. It will be interesting to hear where else Maury takes this alternative hip hop sound in the future.
