Porter Robinson divulges his first track from Worlds, ‘Sea of Voices’
Few words can accurately embody the anxious anticipation that surrounds Porter Robinson‘s forthcoming album Worlds. His enigmatic album announcement revealed imagery and a blip of a preview to the young producer’s “nostalgic, emotional and pretty” sounds he explained would be the body of his latest work, but kept fans eagerly awaiting more.
Today, after a short Twitter introduction, Porter has released “Sea of Voices,” his first reveal from Worlds. The 21-year old star has lived up to his promise to shy away from the mainstream and found a perfect balance of his inspirations: natural, organic sounds blend with his impeccable production abilities for a movie soundtrack appropriate tune. Moments before releasing his latest on Soundcloud, Porter took a moment to share his inner journey behind the making of Worlds. “I found the more I forced myself to work within DJ-friendly limits, the more I resented the genre. I realized the rift between the music that works for DJs and the music that I love had grown too huge to ignore.”
“Sea of Voices” engulfs listeners in a melodic explosion of synth trickles and kicking blasts with interludes for an echoing vocal. The layers of exploratory emotional depth in Porter’s latest embody the specific, powerful atmosphere that’s to come with Worlds. While we continue to await a specific 2014 release date for the album, listen below for a preview of the alluringly beautiful “Sea of Voices.”
