I discovered this new release by ambient dream-pop duo Fjord in Soundcloud’s “recommended for you” section, and I am so happy I had the time to browse today.
The opening melodic line of “Shapes” is not unlike the heartwrenching ballad “Unsteady” by X Ambassadors. Mixed with R&B and ambient production elements, this lyrically simple song truly soars straight to the heart with its naked choruses and raw emotions that are stirred therein.
The duo from Quebec, made of Thomas Casault and Louis-Étienne Santais, were recently featured on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist, showcasing “Shapes” as one of the new highlights of the week.
Keeping on with a tradition of ethereal musicality and hauntingly beautiful vocal lines, perfectly executed, Fjord hits a home run with this track. We look forward to hearing more dreamlike tunes from this alternative duo.
