If Ego Tripping intended to offer a full-body sensory experience with their latest Dreamwave single “Pleasure Rift” they definitely succeeded.
There’s plenty of ambience to be enveloped by. There’s also the infusion of cutting atmospheric tones which will go down a treat with fans of 80s Post Punk such as The Chameleons and Echo and the Bunnymen.
For seven serene minutes, you’ll get to follow the progressive nature of the single which offers a fully rounded tonal palette and vocals which border on hypnotic. The vocals rest above the reverb-soaked instrumentals just enough for the lyrics to resonate. But there’s plenty of synergy between the winding melodicism and the tantalising lucid whispers.
Pleasure Rift was the first single to be released from Ego Tripping’s debut album which is due to be released on January 17th. I’ve got a feeling you won’t want to miss the rest of it.
You can experience the catharsis of Pleasure Rift for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
