‘Oceans’ is the brilliant latest release from electronic producer, Mawsua.
The single opens to the sound of a beautifully played piano that is being underpinned by the gentle noise of waves from the ocean. Synths enter and start adding their own rhythm and establishing themselves as a big player in the mix.
Mawsua’s vocals are the shining star of the piece. They are smooth and inviting. There is a natural rhythm in the cadences that navigates the melody along. Mawsua delivers complex melodies with ease and natural ability. There is emotion written deep into the DNA of the piece that Mawsua sets free and through this, creates a deep connection with the listener.
As the song progresses, a heavier beat drops, it takes the listener on a whole new path and keeps the their attention beautifully. The beat has a sinister feel to it too. The vocals fall to the back of the mix and they are filled with beautiful delay and reverb. The beat then falls away and the vocals return to the forefront of the mix. It is composition at its finest.
Atmospheric and charming, ‘Oceans’ is a song that stays with the listener long after the music has finished. It is filled with interesting and captivating lyrics such as, “Light is filling up my mind, watch me grow from the inside.” Its positive message will resonate with a lot of people and we believe this is what will make ‘Oceans’ a song that will stand the test of time.
‘No Face Records’ is Mawsua’s record label and one thing is for sure, they have a spellbinding, unpredictable, melodic track with ‘Oceans’. We can not wait to hear what will come next from such an exciting artist.
