Seattle-based producer WMD has released his new 10-track album Deliquesce with the Natural Blonde imprint. The album sees him take his years of production experience, having started as a youth, and distil it into a moody and sometimes sombre collection. Let’s delve in
The already released single ‘Yearn’ (read our feature on the single here) is a minimal production. Guitars ring out in broken chords, leaving a sort of hollow space in which the other instruments appear: a bowed violin accents the constant piano, which serves as a heartbeat and gives the track its pulse.
‘So In Love’ leads the big reveal, highlighting the overall tone of the album. One can find the element contained throughout the project: guitars, processed vocals, strings, and softly-tapping drums. Overall, WMD has sustained cohesiveness, managing to do so using sound choice.
