Cry Wolf & Ianborg ~ Oceans!

Crywolf & Ianborg Oceans Artwork!

In the world of modern electronic music, I find myself being drawn more towards songs that interweave classic hard hitting beats with highly infectious melodies.  “Oceans” by up and comer CRY WOLF, otherwise known as Denver native Justin Phillips,  is exactly this type of tune.  Teaming up with the remarkable talents of Canadian music producer Ianborg, the pair have created an impressively harmonious track that’s been floating around my head for the past few days.

The simple elements behind “Oceans” are creatively blended well together: muffled voice chop ups,  wavy keyboard pulses and pounding bass expressions.    Justin’s vocals are cleverly understated and float nicely just under the surface of the track.  I especially enjoyed the lyrics “I feel you coming on, coming into me, like a flood, like a breath, like a melody”.  There’s a bigness in the dubstep side of the sound that appears ready to explode at any moment but is beautifully contained.  “Oceans” is simply a smooth sounding downtempo track my lured earbuds wish would never end.

“Oceans” will be one the songs featured on CRY WOLF’s upcoming Ghosts EP which is due out this April.  If the debut EP is anywhere near the quality of this track, I think a lot more people will be drawn in just like me.

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
