Both hailing from the Colombus, Ohio area, Henry Blaeser and CoastalDives have history together. The two producers have teamed up before to release music on No Problema Tapes, but CoastalDives insists this new one is his favorite track they’ve made. “Surface” came out today, and it is a shimmering euphonic journey that you’ve got to hear.
While this is certainly a more gentle and easygoing song, do not get mistaken on the amount of movement the music creates. The duo craft a calm and cathartic atmosphere with faded ambient sounds, yet manages to throw in a number of tempo changes to keep an element of excitement and surprise. It almost feels synonymous with the surface of a wave breaking, gliding and changing constantly. With the heavenly, oscillating vocals sprinkled on top, it’s like the cherry on top of an already cinematic experience.
You can take a listen to the song below. Enjoy!
