Matthewdavid’s lush and lucid EP International is a shimmering collage of coastal chillwave that engages the multiple channels in a listener’s subconscious.
A pleasurable pastiche of hazy beats, spectral synth work and saturating textures, International is a deep and dreamy endeavor. From diaphanous vocal samples to the silken strum of a guitar, soft ocean echoes to a laid-back 808, the EP lures the listener into a plush world that teems with sensory treasures. Drums glimmer like a musical mirage, gossamer melodies mingle with scattering beats while smooth waves wash over shuffles of sound.
This chill-inducing addition to the Brainfeeder catalog is compellingly rich and thoughtful, with four solid tracks that contribute another diverse layer to the label’s growing legacy. Like all of Matthewdavid’s work, International is far ahead of its time and transmutates from beginning to end, shapeshifting towards a fluid future with every glistening layer.
