‘New Years’ is New Music from Foundling
Location: Berlin, Germany
FFO: Feral & Stray, Timber Timbre
Label: Malmu Records
The first taste of Berlin based Foundling‘s debut album Fault Lines, ‘New Years’ is a dream pop masterpiece. Bearing the distinctive imprint of Danish producer Marc Stebbing (Grand Avenue) it recalls distinctly Scandinavian aesthetics, vast landscapes and sweeping skies all with a detailed intimacy and a distant pulse.
The vocals soar above this track slow and seductively. Gradually more instrumentation is added in a manner which is cool, calm and collected before a gentle crescendo which falls like a slowly breaking wave at marks the track’s conclusion.
