ana wares follows up her debut release Saturn Return EP with her new single, Sonarcotic out via Melbourne's Lo-Fi-45 Recordings. Demonstrating her lyrical and vocal prowess in this one, she has a knack for making music that encourages you to get lost in her rich melodies. As she puts it, "Tune in and tune out". The single is a blissful, resonant piece with gorgeous leads that interweave creating counterpoint harmony. Lingering chimes ring out and the warm, incandescent feel stays with you, leaving a lasting echo of an impression long after it has finished sounding. Designed for lush and zoned out sets, this track shows off anas real playing chops, rare knack for meaningful melody and exquisite compositional skills. The title, "Sonarcotic" is a portmanteau of sonar- stemming from a sound in the piece the artist created that reminds her of marine mammals such as whales communicating using such transmissions, and narcotic - referring to the idea that the effect of music on the brain is akin to a drug. Although the lyrical content is reflective of themes of social behaviour, the words "Round and round and round, we merrily go. We're just blind, leading blind leading blindly, all follow," can also relate to being unconsciously led by a higher force and this concept can be just as true of music as it can of human nature. As well as an instrumental that removes the robust chorus of layers of the artist's own voice, the remix comes from Kaymid, alias of Kasey Taylor- world renowned DJ, Producer, Label Head of Vapour Recordings and eVapour8 as well as Lo-Fi-45's Founder in Chief. His interpretation follows a different chord progression, with a lighter, quirky house touch and this all works to sooth mind, body and soul as the curious drums roll on endlessly. His wordless instrumental places more focus on the striking musicality of the track.
