On the Horizon: Trailblazing, Trails And Ways.

Oakland, California's Trails And Ways initially leapt to online attentions with an oneiric interpretation of M83's breakthrough 'banger' Midnight City and Tereza, the lead single from forthcoming full-length Trilingual, evidences further sonic similarity: persistent drum machines; humid, wholly tropical samples; an affable backdrop of synths and sighs. Like a Balearic Broadcast, Spanish and Portuguese inflexions uttered atop nylon strings serve to perpetuate such impression although it's the lucid vocals of Emma Oppen that set it apart as they emerge from the murks of the mix like a palm stroking its way through a dense fog.
