After the highly appraised Jerry Folk, we found ourselves in love with another Next Wave artist, Trace. Today’s new secret is a haunting electropop tune that builds up slowly, never quite climaxing, but arriving to a sensation of clarity in the midst of some honest emotional confusion. We’re talking about Trace‘s latest single, Low. A definite feel-good song and an antitheses in itself: the light, dreamy ambiance and the soft, sweet vocals contrast deeply with the harsh reality of the lyrics Maybe I’m bored/ Or maybe it’s you/ It might be good if we could be too. As she describes her sound on SoundCloud: “moody but you’re into it”. And yes we are.
I prefer better, though I prefer you
I used to be sweeter, but I prefer you
I prefer better, though I prefer youwhere
I prefer, I prefer you
