EDM tracks rarely offer viscerally compelling lyricism and truly captivating vocals, however with SPEECHLIS’s R&B & Soul infused single “Ocean” featuring female vocalist LYGIA, they created a track which simultaneously offers intricately mesmeric rhythm and a real human connection.
Ocean is an incredibly accessible single straight from the prelude, there’s no anticipation to make a connection with the sound, it’s made with the very first melodic lyrical line. Despite the reverberance from the bass, and the more caustic sounds of cutting electric guitar riffs Ocean still remains a restoratively gentle single which stands as a testament to both SPEECHLIS and LYGIA’s talent.
You can check out the evocatively powerful single from SPEECHLIS X LYGIA which was released in June 2019 for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
