submerse “Gloom”

“Back living in Shibuya on the 9th floor I can see day turn to night and watch the city breathe” explains submerse in reference to Stay Home, his upcoming EP for Project: Mooncircle.

Where his first EPs and debut album Slow Waves mingled with nostalgia and adjusting to Tokyo city life, this is a celebration of stability – the tale of the beatmaker finally being comfortable within his latest surroundings. Just like the view from his apartment, these tracks play out like towering glimpses across a nocturnal city panorama.

Amidst the vocal snippets of Goapele (on “Thinking About You”) and twinkling nightriders like “Bokeh” lies “Gloom”. A number that’s dark by title, yet pearly in its timbre. Shifting along like an early AM nightbus soundtrack, it tides together puffy footwork paddles, R&B wails and the glint of electric piano in an alluring, eventide bundle.

Stay Home comes out worldwide on limited vinyl and digital as well as a limited edition CD including a bonus track via flau records in Japan on the 26th of May, 2015. Preorder it here.
