southern shores – “palo alto”

toronto’s southern shores have been mum for close to four years now, but the duo will break their silence on september 2nd with their debut full-length album, loja.  the project’s eight tracks retain an effortlessly breezy aesthetic informed by a muted, pragmatic approach towards making electronic music, not dissimilar to the body of work offered up by their label-mate, maria usbeck, earlier this summer.

lead single “palo alto” provides an enticing glimpse into the overall affect of loja, its rhythm-centric core propelling a wash of synth pads and vocal samples that bob along like pieces of driftwood caught between the changing tides.  looped up and played on repeat, it becomes a particularly soothing soundtrack for summer’s waning months.  take a listen below.
