I’ve been finding a lot of value in gentle music for the early mornings lately. I prefer a soft stirring rather than a full on energetic wakeup so Lyric FM suits the mood a lot. For the last week or so, Oliver Tank has supplanted my radio habits for the AM hours.
The 21 year-old Sydney producer’s Dream EP is a lilting release of unfolding electronic passages anchored by Tank’s earthy vocals. His voice reminds me of Sam Amidon, folky and rustic. It’s a contrast that works together to conjure a comforting atmosphere. The overall effect is also reminiscent of Active Child too.
There’s also an equally excellent remix EP as a free download as well as others on Soundcloud.
