Oregon’s own Lucy In Disguise is back again with more retro-future bliss, “V.T.W.A. ft Laura Claire.”
Though the track was originally intended to be solely instrumental, the synth-loving producer was enraptured by Laura Claire’s effortless, breezy vocals and added them onto the final cut.
Claire’s voice weaves in and out, emerging and dissolving again into the song’s lofty, Com Truise-esque fabric. The synthwave serenity of the track takes the listener on a lush, aerial ride through the producer’s lofty atmospheric dreamscape.
“It was my goal to experiment and stay away from the cliches that I find in a lot of synth-wave music,” he said.
“V.T.W.A,” comes just ahead of his album “Unkown Frequency,” set for release March 2 via his own label, Innerworks Records.
The upcoming album will explore the producer’s deep affinity for vapory, kaleidoscopic synth-wave, as he tries to dodge some of the pitfalls of his predecessors.
