It seems like I hear a great new electronic song just about everyday now. “Soleil” by ROOSEVELT is an awesome tune I crossed paths with today and I am very glad I did. I first heard of ROOSEVELT when he released “Sea” earlier this year and it immediately caught my cognizant ear. In the same light, “Soleil” has gained my undivided attention and now my sincerest praise. The opening synth sequence is absolutely beautiful and sets the tone for the whole song. The vocals are feathery light and melodically mellow and when I close my eyes I can almost see them floating around the bass and drum vibrations in my head. Close your eyes and try it. I bet you will see it too!
ROOSEVELT, otherwise known as Marius Lauber, has opened for Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and has been steadily gaining notoriety and a reputation for putting on a great live performance. A debut EP is in the works and if it sounds anything like “Sea” or “Soleil”, the electronic world will be in for quite a treat.
