This release definitely kicks off with the classic old-school radio effect, which definitely takes us back to the good old days. Katie Laine’s voice almost takes you off your feet with her majestic harmonics, combined with Tropic Harbour’s soothing melodies and beats. Oh No is going to be the perfect release for that summer drive down the countryside, you can stream Oh No below:
“Katie’s voice has such an effortless charm about it and her songwriting always stood out to me, so I wanted to collaborate with her. I asked her to send me a recording of a song she was working on so she sent me a rough iPhone recording with just a single take of her track. I was planning to have her come over to my studio to re-record the guitar and vocals, but after playing around I loved the imperfections of it and just went with it.”
ALIGN takes us on a journey with his stunning new EP Intertwine, which brings 5 beautifully made releases Embrace, Symmetry, Follow Me, Thought Patterns and Found. The EP kicks off with something magical, Embrace truly represents what everyone should do with this release. It give us goosebumps just listening to it, it combines the sounds of an old film rolling in the background while the harmonic pads come flowing in and to top it off this gentle guitar lead just sits on top and that is the icing on the cake for me.
Symmetry definitely gives a more upbeat feel to the EP, the warm feeling of the piano chords and the essence of the vocal chops just give the track that extra burst of emotion .
Follow me kicks off with this moving chords, which almost remind me of some sort of church organ, but the main power house of this release is the siren (mythical creature) type vocals . Which just catch you and you just can’t seem stop listening.
Thought Pattern is another magical release where you a hit with a soothing arp fluttering throughout the release, accompanied but the vocal shots and the heavily side-chained chords.
Found is bringing back those tropical vibes, with the plucky style chords that just complement the whole release. The vocals bring an extra element into this release which is hands down super addicting to listen too.
Over all the EP is a stunning piece of work and we are 10000% that everyone who listens to this will fall in love with it and enjoy it a much as we did 🙂
“When we finally started to pull out of the winter and darker times, I felt like I had found the direction I needed to go. Overall, ‘Intertwine’ holds its name because the more I think about things, the more I realize they’re all connected, and well, intertwined. This EP generally represents a range of emotions that we go through as humans, and how they’re all connected to each other in one way or another. The tracks on ‘Intertwine’ are not without their flaws, and none are perfect, but neither are we — I look at these minor pieces as things to embrace.” – ALIGN

“‘Follow Me’ is a melancholy track that evokes an ever-burning lust and desire. To me, the repetition of the phrase throughout this track allows the listener to feel a deeper sense of thinking of something, or someone, over and over again. The downtempo tune provides for a mellow, more reflective atmosphere while journeying through this track beginning to end.” – ALIGN

“I was supposed to take on a remix of Billie Eilish’s ”lovely” when I produced ”Right Now?” last summer, it ended up that I pretty much lost the whole vibe of it. Me and my manager came up last September that this track might be the best way to show the world what my sound it going towards to; a more experimental and dark pop type of sound. ‘Right Now?’ is one of the demos that I felt like ‘ah screw it, let people hear this’, this is my way to try to push my more experimental side. I would describe this track as an echo of a heartbroken person questioning it’s lover ‘what makes you so happy right now?’ in silence. All alone.” – Finis Mundi

“This track came together when the first warmth of spring actually started to reveal itself. I had just moved to Portland and the whole city just exploded with cherry blossoms and daffodils, so grabbed my laptop and an acoustic guitar, laid out in the park and crafted what I thought was just a goofy little beat that I’d never use. But when Effee and I started working together, I immediately thought of that day and how wonderful her voice would sound nestled in the bright, peaceful production of this unfinished song. Just a week or so later she sent me back these lyrics that perfectly captured the carefree, sunny mid-morning essence that had originally inspired me.“ – Manatee Commune
