Bronze Whale has one of the most intricate, unique sounds of any indie-electronic act we’ve heard in a while. Having continued to impress with their last two singles “Slowing Down” & “Growing Up” today we’re excited to have the pleasure of premiering the duo’s new collab with Poles, titled “Austin Is Fading“.
Coming as their first release of 2020, BW has brought it all back home (to Austin, TX that is) for this latest. Featuring a brilliant blend of soft, bouncing synths, atmospheric soundscapes and crisp, skittering percussion – the duo offer up a melancholic exploration of their changing feelings about the place of their origin.
“We tend to write late…like really late. So without fail, someone (or one of us) usually passes out in the studio. That was the case with our buddy Austin (Poles) who was working on this song with us. The name stuck, but when writing the lyrics, I decided to explore what the town we live in (Austin, TX) means to us and how drastically it, and our relationships within it are changing.” – Bronze Whale
This new introspective offering will definitely give you a bit to think about. Check out “Austin Is Fading” below and enjoy!
