Bringing together elements of FKA Twigs-esque electronic-pop with the lofi dance beats and sparkling production akin to the likes of Jamie XX, IOTA PHI captures something special on the new single ‘Wide Awake (C Dorian)’.
Sounding almost primal, the vocal delivery and at times tribal rhythms that surround the pulsing four to floor come together to create a truly unique, ritualistic feel to the track. Full of beautiful ideas from the haunting reverb drenched lead vocal to the dreamy flecks of electronics that dance around the soundscape the track shows a lot of creative flair.
Cinematic and spacious, the tracks melancholic yet at times euphoric soundscape is reflected perfectly in the stunning accompanying video. Featuring IOTA PHI’s child and many stunning shots, the video was filmed over multiple locations including inside the mouth of an inactive volcano. The video perfectly reflects the message behind the track, described eloquently by IOTA PHI in this short quote: “What you wish you had done when that time comes. Give life? Read the dreams of humans? Find yourself in the arms of a volcano? Maybe you can do it now.”
Taken from the upcoming album ‘Homo Pauperis’, ‘Wide Awake (C Dorian)’ is out now.
