The ability to add just the right amount of elements to a musical piece is sometimes lost upon the muddied genres of the chill and dreamy. Often times, artists will limit themselves by creating an overly structured sound with no room for surprises, offering limited results.
Shaky Snakes (aka Ian) sent me over this track, called ‘Ozone Exciter,’ today and I’m glad he did. The song was inspired by ‘Vancouver weather, night time beach fantasies, and just going out to after-hours places here in town and seeing people high and smiling and dancing to music so loud.’ It’s got a nice, bouncy beat to it that’s perfectly danceable, making it a great summer-nite jam. The vocals are just dreamy enough, last notes always seeming to linger in the atmosphere of the tune
You can download ‘Ozone Exciter’ for free from Shaky Snakes’ Bandcamp. Keep an eye out for his EP, which he says he hopes to release before summer’s end.
