Lastlings ~ Chills

LASTLINGS Chills Artwork by Joel Caust

Who is LASTLINGS?  An interestingly cool brother-sister duo from the Gold Coast.  They are Amy Dowdle and Joshua Dowdle!

My first impression of “Chills” : A fascinating and hypnotic electro-pop ride driven by cascading sounds, exhilarating textures and icy vocals!

My take :  LASTLINGS is a name I have been closely following after hearing their incredible “Wavelength” track a few months ago and their latest literally sends “Chills” down my spine.  “Chills” sounds light as air on the surface but I can feel the weight of heavy emotions just underneath, like a white feather floating across the room with a sense of purpose and direction.  The vocals are ice-cold stunning with a steady high-pitched like shrill that is surprisingly alluring.  LASTLINGS have placed themselves on the right side of my expectations with this one and their debut album is one piece of music I am definitely looking forward to hearing in the new year!

Check out the premiere and a quick Q&A with the awesome people over at Oyster here!

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!
