Drewamwave originator (literally) Goldroom and Australian vocalist Chella’s ‘Fifteen’ saw a stunning return to what Dreamwave was supposed to be about, nostalgic good times and emotional resonance with a good groove. the track has made quite a stir since it dropped early last month, so much so that Josh, under pressure from admirers, released the acapella to the public.
Luckily for us it was picked up by On The Fruit Records main man and all round top DiscoElectroPop producer Freak You. Freak You washed the track ain layers and layers of right tones and lush pads. So much so that the track is actually borderline Chillwave. More Chillwave with a proper Disco beat. The swirling masses of starlight arpeggios forming a wall of melody that weaves in and out of the reverb washed vocals to create something quite magical. Like a Disco dream, it’s all beats and soft-focus.
Goldroom’s EP is out now.
