Mountain Lakes – Storms – Single Review

On the 30th of March the Poland based synthwave trio Mountain Lakes revealed the single Storms.

Mountain Lakes - Storms

Mountain Lakes

Storms is a more fussy composition than music of theirs featured previously, yet although not having the organic fluidity of their last track The Quiet Sun nonetheless keeps the listener attentive to the unfurling song.

Opening with a buffering backwash Storms, for the first minute or so, appears to be heading towards radio station mainstream yet delightfully diverges from such thoughts to open a dreamy side channel and for the next getting on for three and a half minutes is a layering of hazy vocal and ever more pressing electronica which build in intensity which can be felt pressing through the speakers in to the room.
