Porter Robinson – ‘Sea of Voices’

By  | 

Porter Robinson has partially pulled back the curtain on his mysterious album Worlds, finally giving fans a taster of the album with his lush new single “Sea of Voices.”

The track marks a radical sonic makeover for the young DJ/producer, ditching any semblance of a club chasing for an emotive ambient sound. The America’s Best DJ 2013 nominee spends the better half of five minutes exploring a sprawling, gorgeous soundscape, replete with orchestral strings, shimmering keys, and disembodied voices.

A quick burst of energy hits late into the track, with heavily reverbed drum hits and warm euphoria channeling elements of the early work of Goldfrapp and French dream pop band M83. Robinson’s ten-hour album teaser video still has us a bit perplexed, but “Sea of Voices” manages to give everything a bit of context.

“Sea of Voices” is available now, and can be streamed it below.
