Colorado’s own bass hero, Mersiv, has long been dishing out serious tunes, so news that his debut album Pretty Dark Loud is coming this fall is music to our ears. To feed our anticipation’s appetite a little bit, we’ve got the premiere for the first single off the proejct, “Floating Underwater Above the Clouds”. This is an intense and enrapturing melodic dubstep song with intricate production.
The soundscape has a very cinematic feel to it, as it crescendos in sound and winds up to the bass-fueled breakdowns. Between the crisp snare drums, the acid-style synthesizers, and the rapid tempo changes, it feels like many different emotions packed into one. It’s synthesizers how Mersiv crafts the sound to be so full and so fluid—a style he likes to call Freeform Electronica.
You can get an exclusive early listen here before the song is released tomorrow. Stay tuned for the album. Enjoy!
