Dysphoria isn’t exactly the best feeling in the world. So, it came as no surprise that Goldielocks latest single “Dysphoria” ft. Elva Ray was a fairly pensive aural experience.
Usually, synth-laden EDM hits attempts to force-feed you euphoria, but with Dysphoria, Goldielocks wasn’t unsuccessful in creating a soundscape which accurately reflects the insidious disconcertment which comes along with doses of dysphoria.
Without a hint of shame, I’ll admit that I was choking back the tears by the time Dysphoria reached the outro. The Sydney, Australia-based artist and producer perceptibly has a deft ability utilise rhythmic pulses and ominous electronic effect to relay resonantly captivating melancholy. That may all sound a little bleak, but Dysphoria is still a stunning soundscape – especially with the inclusion of Elva Ray’s harmonically celestial vocals.
