LUUUL – Beach/The Morning After EP
***NEW CONTRIBUTOR ALERT*** August is almost halfway over and Labor Day is just around the corner, which is the signal for us to all cross our fingers and hope for an Indian summer. Fortunately for us, 19-year-old Belgian producer Roman Bauthier (aka LUUUL) is here to answer our collective prayers for endless sunshine, gifting us with a dreamy chillwave EP recently released on What About You/WAY Records. Listening to his track The Morning After (featuring Anna Paul) is nothing short of a synesthetic experience; put on your headphones, close your eyes, and bliss out while the ebb and flow of saccharine vocals and echoing synths transports you to a paradise where you can feel the warm sand between your toes. Breathe in the muted colors of dusk and let the salty breeze linger on your lips as you listen to Beach (featuring vocals by Amanda Roi), a tune whose fluid and glassy melodies evoke nostalgia for first loves and for the infinite possibilities of a youthful summer spent collecting grass stains and fireflies. Take a break and treat yourself to a refreshing few minutes of musical vacation– you deserve it.
